Jacqui McCormack

I started my career as a shorthand typist in the travel bureau in the basement of Bobby ' s in 1960 which Co - joined the record department. People went into the boots to listen to the records before they bought them....those were the days. I used to spend some of my lunch breaks sitting in a booth taking the words of pop records down and typing them out for various pop groups. This was because they could not afford the music for their "gigs"! The travel bureau was moved up to the ground floor next to Travel Goods and the sweet counters. It was a great time to work for Mr.Bobby. He was a true gent.
