Name Roger Frith Comment: Discosystem Records was in Berrys Arcade High Street Rayleigh Essex from 1976 to 1984 and also sold records and tapes in Rochford, South Woodham Ferrers and Felixstowe markets. We imported some records from the states and supplied many local DJs.
Our own mobile disco operated from 1967 to 2010! We distributed and issued our own 12" disc of Dr Music and Pepper Box by the Peppers on the Spark record label as it was the theme for the local Rayleigh night club Crocs later known as The Pink Toothbrush. It charted in the disco chart. ( November 2, 2016)
Forgot to say Steve Wright was a regular visitor as his mum lived in Thundersley.

Please find attached a bag cover and car sticker for my record shop on Rayleigh.
I bought the shop from JR Tapes in 1976 and ran it successfully for 10 years.
It was purchased as I had been running a mobile disco since 1967 and became sick of shops asking me if a record I wanted was in the top 50. We tried to become the shop where you could ask for any disc and we would try our very best to find it for our customers.
We very visited by many stars of the era including Boy George, Talk Talk, Lamahl and live performances we made by Digby Fairweather, amongst others in the Arcade.
Great times.
