John Brooks

I spent 45 years in the record retail trade, mainly dealing with classical music.

In 1988 I set up my own specialist classical record shop, Classic Tracks in East Bond Street Leicester, and ran it until my retirement in 2005. I still enjoy listening to music. Among my favourite composers are Vaughan Williams, Ravel, Mozart and Sullivan.

I am a member of the Arthur Sullivan Society. Also I am a big cricket fan and during the summer months I can be found at Grace Road or Trent Bridge.
