This blog was set up to archive posts from the messageboard of a Yahoo group, Steve's Kewl Doo Wop Shop, dating from 2000. Read those posts on a single page here or read them individually, with a 2009/2010 commentary, starting here.
The archiving done, I began to write new entries, exploring the music which made the most impact on me when growing up in Scotland in the 60s and 70s. Then I began to add the odd post about comedy or theatre or whatever else took my fancy, though it's still primarily a music blog.
The phrase "Rummaging Through the Record Shop of Memory" seems to sum up what I'm doing, as personal reminiscences are built into these posts. I'm an enthusiast in some musical areas though I don't profess to be an expert. I'm interested in writing about records as they affected me, rather than trying to provide some definitive guide.
I am cowriter of Funny Bones, the autobiography of the British comedian and actor Freddie Davies.
