Tony Thompson RIP.

I have just been informed that Tony Thompson has died of a heart attack. Tony was probably best known for being the owner of 'Memory Lane' Record shop when it was in Derngate, and then in Bridge Street. Tony was also a superb DJ working at places like the Birds Nest, Opus 2, and was resident at The Freewheeler in Kettering for over 10 years. Tony had in more recent times DJ'ed for me at the Park Inn on a number of occasions.

Tony was just 55 years old, and my condolences go out to all…

Some of these were issued on familiar labels like…
