Slow Boat Records is a Wellington institution, a magnet for musos and vinyl heads.

As the city’s longest surviving independent record store, it was named one of the world’s finest music shops back in 2017.

Over the years it’s welcomed famous shoppers like Radiohead and The Beastie Boys through its doors, and also hosted some big international and local names for instore performances.

After decades at the helm, its founder, head honcho, and former musician Dennis O'Brien has decided to take a back seat in the business: he joins us to play some of his favourite music.
