'Vinyl Demand' sees two party girls plucked from their dead end, debt-ridden lives and thrust into the big time as Superstar DJs. They only wanted to pay their gas bill! Beth Roberts and Rula Popek have a lot in common. They are both 19, both have crap jobs and both live in the worst flat in the whole of Wales. The girls have no money, no boyfriends, family who are thousands of miles away and a final demand for a gas bill which they cannot pay. It all looks pretty bleak until one day when Rula stumbles across an entire vinyl record collection which has been left in a local charity shop. She takes a gamble and blows the money for the gas bill on the whole lot and the dream of becoming Cardiff's very own answer to the global girl DJ, Lisa Lashes. It's just a shame she didn't bother to explain the plan to Beth first.
