Rocking in Oxford

£10.00

Rocking in Oxford – A lively personal exposé of the rock music scene in Oxford in the 1960’s and 70’s. Many rare and unpublished photos

Read how:

  • The Beatles came to Oxford (3 times)
  • The Rolling Stones had to spend £1,000 on a flight to appear at Magdalen College
  • When 30 people turned up to hear Status Quo
  • How David Bowie appeared at Oxford’s Town Hall “all dressed up like radiator lagging …”

Contrast this with local band history, collected memoriabilia and the fleeting presences on the Oxford Stage – whatever did happen to Shag Connors and the Carrot Crunchers (and his live chicken)?

Written and collated by the late Trevor Hayward – 40 year rock musician and former broadcaster on BBC Radio Oxford
