Ginger and goofy with a squint and a twinkle ;)
I'm an ageing Club Kid and a Vinyl Addict.
I bought my 1st Single in 1965.
I started working in an "Official UK Chart" independent Record Shop in 1973, & left when CDs were introduced in 1982.
I studied Psychology at Goldsmiths, New Cross
I worked in the Policies & Equalities Unit of my London Borough Council. for 6 yrs
I also conducted research on congestion charges for both; the Mayor of Londons Office (London), and the Highways Agency & Greater Manchester Police (Manchester).
always have and always will be a pedestrian. I do cycle and I love picnics in the park in summer

My mainly MOBO collection spans my entire life from the year of my conception to the present day.
