As a teenager I heard the first Shadows tunes on those "yellow vinyl" singles that we had in Norway at the time. Fired with enthusiasm, together with three friends at school we started a "PIGGTRÅDBAND" as it was called over here.

We never hit the big times, but around Heggedal we became "local heroes." The band only lasted a couple of years - and afterwards I started collecting Shadows records.

And not just records - vinyl, tape, video, books - everything!!

I have a big collection of Shadows records, but I'm always on the look out for ones that I haven't got. My main reason for going on the Internet was to meet other Shadows fans around the world and maybe swap or trade records.
