Graham Jones offered us a first-hand look into the turbulent history of the record shops – its ups, its downs and its hopeful future – with his book and film Last Shop Standing. His latest book, Strange Requests and Comic Tales from Record Shops, shows us yet another side of the record stores, sharing the funny stories and anecdotes he collected over the course of his 30 years in the industry.
Strange Requests and Comic Tales from Record Shops will go on sale July 29, and later this month you can hear Jones tells some of the tales as well as a screening of the brilliant documentary Last Shop Standing.
