Pete Fountain Curiosities

Pete Fountain Curiosities

Records are a small part of collecting when it comes to your favourite artist. There are many many things that pop up and grab your attention over the years. I, in very short time I have found many of these items and thought it would be a great idea to add them to this webpage as they become available. I fully realise that many of these item did appear in the Pete Fountain Blog, many part are now unclickable sadly. Anyway, I certainly hope you enjoy these oddities / curiosities that I have or have found. If you have anything and would like it added please forward it to me either by email or a cloud service. The more we share the better, I’m sure you agree.
