The Memorabilia Collection of Bob Wooler
This collection of over 500 items illustrated in full colour, reveals the full extent of Bob’s interest in Music. Not only his lifetime involvement in the local music scene but the professional relationships he formed with national promoters, venues, record companies, musicians, journalists, TV companies and film companies beyond Liverpool and the UK.
Bob Wooler was the disc-jockey at the Cavern Club, Liverpool during the 1960’s and the compare, disc-jockey and promoter at various Merseyside venues. He was there at the start of Mersey Beat, saw it develop and watched the Beatles rise to fame.
Outside the musicians themselves, Bob Wooler is regarded as the most important figure in the development of Liverpool’s beat scene.
Throughout his life Bob amassed a large collection of memorabilia, which included personal items dating as far back as his school days, along with photographs, press cuttings, newspapers, magazines and correspondence on almost anything or anyone connected with Liverpool’s music scene.
Bob Wooler’s entire collection was eventually purchased from the custodian in 2004 and this new book features many never before seen items including photographs, contracts, letters, flyers and posters.
