With over thirty years as a record company sales rep and still going strong, Graham Jones has visited more record shops in Britain than most people and certainly more than anyone will be able to in the future.
Over the years he has collected a vast number of funny stories and anecdotes. He relates the best of them here, as told to him by those who have been (mostly) pleased and sometimes bemused to find themselves 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.
“Have you got a song by a woman with love in the title? I heard it on
the radio and would like to buy it.”
“If you tell us when you heard it and what radio station it was on we
can look up their playlist and get it for you.”
“That’s fantastic - the station was Radio 2 and it was about 10 years ago.”
