BBC Radio 6 returns to vinyl records for one day
Vinyl set to make radio comeback for one day only
BBC Radio 6 Music has announced it will be playing only vinyl on New Year's Day.
Most BBC stations phased out vinyl in favour of CDs in the 1990s and the majority now use digital versions of songs.
Presenters Jarvis Cocker and Guy Garvey will be among those dusting off their turntables and Don Letts will be bringing his own seven-inch singles.
