Name: Tony May
Comment: Blast From The Past was for most of its life situated in The Enterprise Centre near Eastbourne Station. Its first owner was a 'wily old campaigner' by the name of 'Bob' (amongst others!) and it sold mainly secondhand videos, LPs, and latterly DVDs and CDs.

Later on the business was taken over by a younger chap and he did away with the secondhand element and the vinyl side (though I think he did carry on selling 12"s for a time) and began to sell budget price CDs and DVDs, as well as current chart albums, CD singles and box sets etc. I have a feeling he changed the shop name to Blast Music as well, but this could be a false memory.

The last I remember of the shop, it had moved to bigger premises within Eastbourne station itself (near the shoe repair shop).

Name: David Hudson
Comment: Shopped and browsed here a lot in the mid-1990s for secondhand CD albums and singles.

The shop was very small but well-stocked (sometimes with recent releases). I think they sold a fair bit of VHS too and recall vinyl being on the rear wall from floor to ceiling.

The shop was indeed later renamed to Blast Music.
