Vinyl records make a comeback in Brazil

Despite modern day media and technology, several places in Brazil are bringing back vinyl records.

    Vinyl records were rendered practically obsolete by the advent of digital media, such as CDs and MP3 players.

    But one Brazilian man, Zero Freitas, claims that he has the world's largest collection of vinyl records.

    He says he believes preserving the music on these records is more difficult than selling them as many have been boxed up for years.
