REVISED ROD McKUEN ENTERPRISES SALE DETAILS
In order to make it easier
for potential buyers to play a role in ensuring Rod’s legacy is
maintained, we have decided to split the offering and make the +/- 4,300
master tapes available as a separate purchase. Doing so would enable the
owner to reproduce for sale any of the catalogue recordings.
Bids are welcome - please contact Charlie Hallam for more information or

birthday. I “will take a drink or two” in celebration and I hope you’ll
join me in doing so.
