Ex DJ Duncan Finlayson, better known as Funky Dunc, first started music retail at The Top Ten Shop, 594 Bristol Rd, Selly oak – his Saturday job for Jo and Iris Beckett, who had the shop for years.

In 1976 he brought the business off the Becketts, which was predominately a chart shop with a big interest in dance and soul music (also selling leather goods). In those early days it was just Duncan and Christine Norton who worked there.
