The UK radio station ClassicFM reports a growth in its younger audience.

But I doubt if these listeners are collecting vinyl. IMO the big vinyl
collectors are either Japanese hobbyists, or DJs anywhere looking for anything
different to mix in.

Sales of turntables are said to be surprisingly healthy.

"The Gramophone" magazine reports a massive interest in classical music
in China, with millions learning to play the piano and many concert
halls under construction.
