Name: Russell Smith
Comment: The Rediffusion Shop was on the corner of Tentercroft Street and the High Street near the bus station and hence was a good stopping-off place before heading home. It was like Spouges and sold electrical goods in the front and records at the back. It was quite atmospheric and a definite hark back to the past. If memory serves it was the last shop in Lincoln to have working listening booths. It had a great bargain bin, which again if memory serves was a roundular in the middle of the shop. I'm not sure when it closed - it was still there in the late 1970s as I recall picking up Wreckless Eric 10" on brown vinyl there. One abiding memory is buying the Kinks single Apeman from the aforementioned bargain bin.

Name: Paul Devereux
Comment: I bought my first Gordon Lightfoot album from this shop. I remember looking enviously at The History of Motown box set up on a high shelf and thinking how many weeks' wages I would need to buy it. I never owned it.
