These records were made for Selfridges  during 1933 & 34. The selections were chosen by Christopher Stone (usually referred to as Britain's first "disc jockey") and were pressed by Decca using masters also available on Decca, Panachord and Winner records. The catalogue was quite a small one running from S-600 to about S-630 and artists were generally cloaked in pseudonyms.

 

The following people have kindly helped with this listing: Arthur Badrock, John Culley, Bill Dean-Myatt, Norman Field, Karl John, Jerry King
