(May 13, 2015) I worked at Barnard's during the 70s. John Barnard was a lovely man to work for, and with his mother living above the shop we were never short of a cup of tea or a cake. There was never a day when I did not want to go to work, and the 70s were a fantastic time to be in ones late teens/early 20s. I wish I could go back. Comment: Chris Wilson.
(June 27, 2015) Barnards was the best record shop in Tunbridge Wells in the 1970s. I vividly recall the listening booths at the rear of the shop. I seem to recall John Barnard as a tall, quietly spoken man. I bought my copy of T.Rex's Electric Warrior LP there, which became my first and most prized album. I'm pleased to say I still have it. A much missed store and some very happy memories. Comment: Gary James.
( March 18, 2016) Got some race engine parts from John Barnard for my Morris Cooper S. Vanman.
Like Chris Wilson I also worked at Barnards record shop and remember fondly working in the shop with Chris Wilson, Sam Gish and Miles amount others. I remember John Barnard and his mother living over the shop. At the end of each day we will take the days takings up to John's Mother. Although a long time ago my time working there brings back wonderful memories.
I remember Barnards Record Shop very well indeed. I used to order all my Beatles L.P.s etc from there. I also remember when all the famous '60's pop groups used to play at the Assembly Rooms just up and round the corner from Barnards Record Shop. Groups that I saw there included The Rolling Stones + The Animals.
