Jim Wilson is the founder and owner of New Zealand’s most successful poster and publicity company, Phantom Billstickers.

He established a vibrant musical hub in Christchurch in the 70’s & 80’s, booking bands into music venues and promoting their gigs with posters and flyers.

He's also finishing his own book as well as giving a voice to many local poets and writers with his Phantom Billstickers Café Reader and sponsoring New Zealand poetry events internationally.

Jim Wilson talks to Trevor Reekie about his passion for music, poems and posters - and keeping it real.
