Not a DJ. Never have been, never will be. D.J. are just the initials of my name!

Born into an era with 3 Beatles, was introduced to the decade's most successful artist, Shakin' Stevens. His being my first concert in 1988.

First music I owned was a tape of Michael Jackson - Dangerous started seriously collecting and chart researching 1996.

My aim is to link-credit all companies and individuals on all media that I collect or trade.

Specialist area of interest and expertise are UK hit singles and albums since 1952, which I aim to get a digital copy of all of them from original format, be it shellac, vinyl, tape or CD. I buy and listen to almost exclusively UK releases.

My sales items are from my collection in my attempt to achieve this goal.
Favourite music and special areas of collecting to keep:
Eurovision (UK entrants and winners) especially ABBA
Stock, Aitken & Waterman productions and songs
Cher
Jim Steinman productions and songs
Programmed / electronic pop (Spice Girls,Steps, Ace Of Base)
Europop crossover dance
2 Unlimited, Vengaboys, Whigfield etc.
West coast / Canadian soft rock (Bryan Adams, Bangles, Heart, Eagles etc.)
Pre-Beatles Rock n Roll
