Rudy's Rare Records archiveRudy's Rare Records is a tiny down-at-heel old reggae record shop in Birmingham. It's one of a dying breed; a place with real soul, stacked with piles of vinyl, where the slogan is "if we don't have it - them don't mek it". It's owned by the charismatic, irrepressible, cantankerous Rudy Sharpe, reluctantly helped out by his long-suffering son Adam, but when the threat of developers looms, father and son must put their differences aside as they face a battle to keep the music alive. Featuring a live band onstage playing reggae, ska, funk and hip hop classics, Rudy's Rare Records is a feel good funny night out about how desperate times draw families together, even when you can't stand the sight of each other.
