Owned a record store in Invercargill in 1970's, sold to EMI, went to Australia 1981, opened up indie record store Sting Records, closed and joined Brashs in Australia as Accessory Product Manager 1982 and then GM Recorded Music 1986. Of course records stores generally dissappeared so ended up back in NZ in 2000 with a building supplies chain. Now retired or as I prefer to call it "changing lifestyle"!
Still purchase/listen to lots of music. Play occasionally in a band and duo as Singer/Harmonica player.
