  10. J & BW was on the right hand side going up from town of London Road near where there is an optitions now. Think it was run by a husband and wife team and nothing to do with Johnson's Soundaround which was on the other side of the road higher up on the corner and was owned by Mr Johnson.

Then Roulette in the market, now 'Their price', also outlets in the hole in the road and Aldine Court just off High Street and in later days a little shop on the Moor. Prior to that there was Kens records in the old Rag & Tag market. Also a good shop at Rotherham in one of the shop units outside the market. Can ayone rember its name? Used to catch the 69 bus and always come home with something.
  13. Does anyone remember the outdoor pursuits centre ?, Brownhead Farm near Pickering on the North Yorkshire moors. Think we had a few sponsered swims to raise money for it. Went a couple of times, no proper toilets, only an old style porto loo, remember we had to take it in turns to empty it, dig a hole in the ground and empty its contents into it. Think the school has since sold this farm, does anyone know?

You could hire a twin deck dj unit, that was just 2 garrard sp25 turntables built into a carrying box, no mixer in those days. They also has regular supplys of new older Motown singles, used to stick them in the window.
