Remember years ago you used to hear a lot of “when he/she grows up they want to be a…” Well when I was a kid I really wanted to play for Manchester United but being fairly average at kicking a ball round the opportunity never arose (insert joke here). If not a footballer then I really wanted to be a Beatle but having no musical talent that again was never gonna work!! So I took the easy option and a career of pen pushing at the local Electricity Board beckoned. And thats where I stayed for over thirty years and I did alright to be honest and was able to retire at 50! After a wonderful 9 months doin very little (apart from travelling to Australia and Moscow and doin a few days work as an extra in the Ken Loach film Looking For Eric) I thought I better keep myself busy so signed up for an agency and ended up working at Lloyds doing data entry. Sounds boring but there was a rule that you could wear your headphones so I got to listen to so much music it was great. Then two years ago I was 58 and thought that will do, no more work for me. Over Xmas 2015 I bumped into a mate of mine who used to work on the singles counter in HMV Manchester, he was now working at an independant Northern Soul shop in Prestwich but was looking to retire himself, he asked If I fancied doing a couple of days a week in the shop? Which is how at the grand old age of 60 I finally got my real dream shop….working behind a record counter!! So did anyone else here get their dream job??? Details please…..
