A blast from the past joins us at the top of the show tonight. John Mears was part of the crew way back in the days of the dear old General Wolfe, the Coliseum and Duporth Holiday Camp. John was a walking encyclopaedia of rock n roll stories, having been in the thick of things as Keith Moon's friend and chauffeur (amongst other things!) John has since moved away, but thanks to social media, he has been sharing stories and photos online, after months of online nagging, we've finally persuaded him to write a book of his memories.
Record Store day is just a couple of weeks away on Saturday 22nd April, joining us tonight is Pete Willis of Music Nostalgia in Truro. Pete loves his vinyl and music in general, tune in to find out what we can get our mitts on during Record Store Day 2017 and how vinyl sales are finally overtaking CD sales.
