Strange Requests and Comic Tales from Record Shops

by Graham Jones
£9.95   paperback  Proper Music Publishing Ltd (2013)

Strange Requests and Comic Tales from Record Shops by Graham Jones Graham Jones has 30 years experience as a record company sales rep. Over the years he has collected a huge number of funny anecdotes. He relates the best of them here in his new book Strange Requests and Comic Tales from Record Shops. The anecdotes come from people who have been often pleased and sometimes bemused to be stationed behind the record shop counter.
This hilarious new collection of "I'll-hum-it-have-you-got-it?" and similar stories is an engrossing memorial to an increasingly bygone age.
The book contains over 200 amusing anecdotes and requests gathered from independent record shops past and present along with tales from HMV, Our Price, Music Zone, Virgin and classical music stores too. The book also features tales from record company sales reps who recall tales of life on the road and trying to get the records they were promoting into the charts.
