It was our great pleasure to welcome David Hepworth as our guest on April 19th. Gavin Hogg was our host with the most, and steered David through a range of topics relating to his books, Whistle Test, Live Aid and of course Smash Hits. Add to that the Q&A (Benny Hill, Top Of The Pops and Van Morrison all got a look in there) plus a few records, it was a very entertaining evening. David was even presented a record from Beany by the Hepworth Band, a platter we’re sure he’ll treasure from this day forth (see David’s tweet about it below).
A big thank you to Lyn (door and photos) and to Steve (book stall and roadie) for their invaluable assistance on the night. If you want to find out more about George Street Community Bookshop and maybe even get involved, check out their Facebook page.
We’ll be back on Thursday 10th May for a session dedicated to 2 Tone Records with John Walmsley. Details soon.

Great job by Simon @GlossopRecord & Gavin @WholeHogg hosting @davidhepworth tonight. We learned there is a widespread consensus on who is the biggest shit in Rock music. He doesn’t drive a taxi but he might drive a Van.
