Stars come out at Spalding record shop

Spalding's Uptown Vinyl Records hosted a star-studded BBC Radio Lincolnshire broadcast of Melvyn in the Morning.

BBC presenter Melyyn Prior interviewed special guests, including former Radio Caroline broadcaster Tom Edwards, Ray Fenwick, who played with The Spencer Davis Group, and South Holland poet Benjamin Zephaniah.

Singing live were Pavanotti (Jeff Woods) and ex Spalding town centre manager Dennis Hannant.

It was the third time that Uptown boss Alan Barnsdale had welcomed Radio Lincolnshire to Spalding Lifestyle Centre.

All of the music played for the festive special came from Alan's extensive stock of vinyl ... and he came up trumps with every request from listeners and guests alike, including a 1950s recording of Eartha Kitt's Santa Baby.

Alan said: "We tried to play Christmas records that you don't normally hear."
