The last few weeks have been nerve-wracking ones at hmv towers, but on February 5th the news finally arrived that a rescue deal was in place and that hmv had a brand new owner in Sunrise Records boss Doug Putman. But just who is this mysterious Canadian, we hear you ask?
Having purchased the handful of Sunrise Records stores situated in Ontario in 2014, Putman has since expanded the chain to more than 70 locations across Canada and is now looking to repeat that success in the UK with hmv.
With the new boss in town, we sat down with Doug for a chat about his passion for music, how he got involved with Sunrise Records, and why he thinks hmv can continue for many years to come.
