The items listed below all come from the collection of former Cavern Club compere Bob Wooler.

Bob was a pivotal figure in the Merseyside music scene. His initial involvement with Mersey Beat came via a local skiffle group named The Mars Bars who later became Gerry & The Pacemakers. Bob found his niche as a compère at The Cavern, it was in this role that he made his greatest contribution to popularising Merseybeat. He is most notable for being instrumental in introducing Brian Epstein to The Beatles on his visit to The Cavern on 9th November 1961. He introduced The Beatles on countless occasions during their 292 appearances at the club from 9th February 1961 (as the Quarrymen) to their last appearance on 3rd August 1963 and became a great local ambassador for the group, helping to develop and consolidate their popularity on Merseyside. Bob acted as a booking agent for The Cavern until 1967 (the club had folded on 27th February 1966 to re-open four months later). Bob Wooler died on 8th February 2002 in Liverpool.
