Anecdotes from Behind the Retail Frontline

Nerys Hughes, comedienne and Liver Bird, asked how to get to Portobello Market. She said it was "years since I have been around here. It's all a little bit more modern now". You would have thought she was a pensioner the way she went on. And thinking about it, she probably is.

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.
