Slipped Disc is on the move

Slipped Disc is on the move

In the past two days, more than 248,200 people from all over the world chose to read stories on Slipped Disc.

Over the past six months, the site has averaged over a million readers a month, and rising. We are amazed and grateful for your interest.

These statistics represent a community above and beyond anything achieved by any other cultural or classical music website. It would be timid and irresponsible on our part to keep this dedicated following to ourselves.

So, in the coming weeks, Slipped Disc will move to a custom-built site with a range of advertising and promotional opportunities. The aim is to build a bigger and better site, employ more people and appear in more languages.




We will keep you posted every step of the way. Today, we finalised our first partnership agreement.

If you’d like to know more about those promotional opportunities, please contact Robin at

    A brilliant website. Norman you are a beacon for musicians. I have to work and practise a lot.Slipped Disc keeps me in touch with the outside world. It is just wonderful news that so many people appreciate you. All the very best for the bigger site and future!

  • Good luck with the move! I hope the advertising will not be too aggressive. It is nice to come here for a respite from sites with ads all over the place, even though the Schadenfreude is sometimes a little thick n the ground here. 🙂

    Congratulations and best wishes on the future expansion! I find this a totally invaluable site for the news updates and inside information, but perhaps even more so for the wonderful links to fascinating articles and music which one wouldn’t normally encounter during normal browsing activities.
