I don't recall DMD Records in the 1980's as I moved out of the area in the mid-1970's, but there was definitely a record shop at 3 Brigstock Parade, London Road, Thornton Heath from the late 1950's to the mid-1970's. Mrs. Woodger ran it and she used to have Saturday girls helping her in the shop sometimes. Her husband was a radio engineer who had his own shop further up Brigstock Road and they lived just a few streets away in Buxton Road. Other people remember it too, as Jane Bashford commented on a Bygone Croydon Facebook page: “Record shop on corner of London Road and Brigstock Road, Thornton Heath had booths.” ... and Marion Jones commented on a Norbury Photographs Facebook page: “There was one on the corner of London Road and Brigstock Road. The lady who ran it was Mrs. Woodger. I worked a couple of shops away in Priors Estate Agents (at 7 Brigstock Parade) for 3 years and got to know her well.” ... and Jennifer Bobbins replied: “I've no idea of the name of the shop, but just remember as teenagers, on a Saturday morning, meeting there and it's where I bought records.”
