Lots 501 - 591 are from the collection of Jonathan Ruffle, a British writer, director and producer, who has made TV and radio programmes for the BBC, ITV, and Channel 4. During his time as a producer of the Radio 1 show from the mid-1980s-90s he collected the majority of the lots on offer here. These include rare vinyl, acetates, and Factory Records promotional items. The majority of the vinyl lots being offered for sale are in Mint or Near-Mint condition – with some having never been played.
