Rudy’s Rare Records.

From July 11 to Aug 1 the Sunday Night Comedy Show is running four episodes of Rudy’s Rare Records.

Son Adam, who fled the family home in birmingham for a better life, nowlives in london and owns a well organized upmarket record shop (Bach To Basics) which specialises in classical records.

When circumstances bring Adam home to look after his dad and the shop, comedic conflict is ready to unfold.
