Strange Requests and Comic Tales from Record Shops with Graham Jones, PLUS a screening of Last Shop Standing

Thursday 25th July 2013 6:30pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

With over thirty years as a record company sales rep, few people have visited as many of the nation's record shops as Graham Jones - and as the industry dwindles, his tally has little chance of being topped in the future. Tonight he shares some of the treasure trove of stories he accumulated from the colourful folk encountered in record shops during his decades on the road, collected in his new book Strange Requests and Comic Tales from Record Shops. He also introduces a screening of the documentary film Last Shop Standing, inspired by his book chronicling the rise, fall and rebirth of the independent record shop.

Last Shop Standing - Running time 50 minutes
