Anecdotes from Behind the Retail Frontlines

Terry Venables, legendary football star and almost successful England manager. It was not a cold day but Terry saw fit to walk around in a flamboyant fur collared coat. He was very short but moved very fast. I thought for a second he was coming into the store but it was just a shimmy to avoid a pushchair coming the other way. He still had the moves.

Behind the counterculture is a recurring series of celebrity encounters or near encounters in or close to a West London used book and record store.
