& CD Collectors Directory
Are you looking for certain items
for your record or CD collection? Or, do you have certain record collectibles
to sell? Whether you look locally or on the net its a wasteland out there.
Thousands of dealers vie for your attention. And, on the net many "dealers"
offer used junk for sale at exorbitantly high prices - often at two, three
or ten times the true value of the record collectable.
If you're looking to buy or sell,
there is a better way. Over the past ten, twenty or thirty years more than
500 mail order specialists and collector's stores have established themselves
as leaders in the record collectables marketplace in North America. If
you're looking to buy, you can depend upon these dealers for absolutely
fantastic quality products - most offer brand-new collectables at lower
prices than the used junk sold by pseudo dealers on the net. And if you
have quality products - or a complete record collection to sell, these
dealers often have the customers waiting to buy your merchandise - so you
can depend on them to offer you the best price.
The secret to buying or selling is
to contact the dealers that specialize in your favourite recorded product.
The Record and CD Collector's Directory provides full details on every
major American and Canadian dealer of quality merchandise.
The directory features two completely
separate indexes. One index is by recorded format. The other index is by
musical (or other) category. Using one index or both the reader can quickly
find all the dealers that specialize in the product you want to buy (or
It lists all types of music in every
format, all types of music collectibles and provides you with all best
contacts you need including many who rarely advertise and some who never
advertise. It is the only book of its type anywhere. (Published in 1995)

CHUM Story by Allen Farrell
From its precarious beginnings in
1945 as a tiny Toronto "dawn to dusker" peddling patent medicine, CHUM-1050
grew into the country's most seminal and celebrated radio station.
In this rollicking reminiscence of
the good old days, CHUM alumnus Allen Farrell reveals how a band of brazen
broadcasters took the rock 'n roll "fad" and ran with it to become
the grand arbiter of all that was hip. You'll meet CHUM's ever-changing
cast of stars - the eccentric on-air personalities, the juggernaut salespeople,
the outrageous promotions people - and its bit players, including peeing
spider monkeys, guitar playing chimps, and, a trio of hex-casting witches
who won the Maple Leafs the Stanley Cup in 1964. You'll get the inside
scoop on and lavish photos of the stars of the day: Elvis, the Beatles,
Johnny Cash, Frankie Valli, Harry Belafonte, Jerry Lewis, Chubby Checker,
Dick Clark, Connie Francis and countless others.
Rock 'n' roll rebels. Top 40 pioneers.
Progressive rock visionaries. CHUM defined each generation by the tunes
they listened to. Anyone who reached for the dial in the '50s or '60s and
turned to CHUM for laughs or social connection should reach now for The
Allen Farrell is a former promotional
director of 1050-CHUM and a pioneer in the Canadian multimedia industry.
A professional speaker and performer, he also writes for the business media.
Allen lives in Toronto.
