I worked in Marble Arch until the Croydon re-vamp and then moved to New York where on a cold December day (the day after I arrived) I walked straight into Pete Dolan. Was the funniest coincidence. Comment: Richard Blackham

I was a bus ride away from Shirland Road to Edgware Road so the new store had to be seen. The only record I recall buying was Pink Floyd 'Wish You Were Here'. The problem, it was warped even though it was sealed in the black plastic cover. I had to return it more than once! I found out it was the heat bar used to seal the black plastic cover. That was the reason given. I don't recall the juke box room. The curator.

Was here in 1972 buying records

I worked here from 76 to 78 with a fantastic crew. We used to get calls from Richard Branson asking us to turn the sound down as he'd had complaints about noise from the cinema above us.
