Mid-Century Winnipeg – Stereo Swap Shop Ad

Stereo Swap Shop TV Ad  

            Linda worked with Nancy Granda at the Stereo Swap Shop, located at Osborne and Gertrude, in the late 1970s before she opened IF… The Swap Home, as Linda called it, was the centre of the world for many Winnipeg music fans and collectors. I spent untold hours studying album covers there. The Swap Shop ran this commercial on the all-night movies that CKND-TV had in the early 1980s. Linda and I wrote and produced it. We only used album covers with people’s faces on them, like Rita Jean Bodine, which I believe I purchased at the Swap Shop!
