Strange Requests and Comic Tales from Record Shops

With over thirty years as a record company sales rep, Graham has collected a vast number of funny stories and anecdotes. He relates the best of them here, as told to him by those behind the record shop counter. This unique collection of "I'll-hum-it-have-you-got-it?" and similar stories is an engrossing memorial to an increasingly bygone age.
