A celebration of second-hand songs, forgotten soundtracks, pound shop pop and abandoned gems with your hosts John & On and Nasty Mcquaid.
Born at The London Fields pub, Charity Shoppe now runs Bi-Monthly at The Dalston Superstore in London and occasionally elsewhere.
All records played have been found in a Charity Shop or Flea Market and cost no more than a couple of quid.
We are now a blog too...
THE CHARITY SHOPPE MANIFESTO:
• ALL RECORDS PLAYED MUST HAVE COME FROM A CHARITABLE OUTLET, FLEA MARKET OR FOUND FORLORN ON THE STREET.
• ALL RECORDS PLAYED MUST HAVE COST THE OWNER NO MORE THAN TWO ENGLISH POUNDS.
• ALL & SUNDRY ARE WELCOME TO BRING ALONG THEIR OWN CHARITY SHOP GEMS TO BE PLAYED (SUBJECT TO A LAX VETTING PROCESS).
• CHARITY SHOPPE IS AN EQUAL-OPPORTUNITIES EVENT, NO GENRES OF MUSIC ARE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST.
• MARVIN GAYE IS GOD.
ALL MUSIC, GOOD AND BAD, WAS LOVED ONCE BY SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE
