I started off in Farmers in Luton - my first listen in their booths was to Steve Miller's Number 5. They soon faded in the 1970's though. Comment: ligthninreed

( August 12, 2015) I just did a Google to see if I could find the name of the record shop where my friends and I used to hang out every Saturday in the 60's and here it is! We would listen to records in the booths because we couldn't afford to buy them! Comment:Terry Sycamore.
On what wonderful memories, thanksRon, like many, spent many happy hours in here and listening in the booths!! A fabulous shop.!
Used to love listening to the latest records in the booths in our lunch hour to take home and play on my dansette record player it was red and cream also used to buy sheet music from there
The shop was a magnet at weekends and after school and I bought my first Beatles and Rolling Stones records, in Mono. Later bought the stereo versions and still have them sixty years on. They also sold sheet music and was a Mecca for music lovers. Tragic to see yet another betting emporium.
Teenagers flocked to hear all their favourite 45's in the booths located on the back wall. There were also the tea rooms above Farmers, with a separate entrance where black clad maids with white aprons served the customers.
