I found an advert in the ‘Hull Daily Mail’ dated 14th December 1990: “Hull's leading ‘Oldies’ specialist. 1,000's of '50's and '60's records in stock. We also buy your records - Top prices paid. GOLDEN OLDIE RECORDS, 28 Princes Avenue, Hull 446160.” ... and an article in the 16th January 1992 edition: “... Another specialist dealer, Dave Thomas of Golden Oldie Records, Princes Avenue, claimed some music actually sounded better on vinyl. ‘Music from the Fifties and Sixties sounds better on an LP because that was the format it was designed for and a lot of rarer music is only available on LP.’ ”

A search for 30 Cottingham Road, Hull on Streetview:,-0.3552683,3a,37.5y,15.28h,84.18t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1say_uazUhLd5I23VOT6SNzw!2e0!5s20140801T000000!7i13312!8i6656?entry=ttu
... found a shop with a sign: ‘G.O. RECORD’S & CDs’ which was there from at least Sept. 2009 to March 2022 with the same phone number (446160) as ‘Golden Oldie Records’ at 28 Princes Avenue, Hull in the early 1990’s – so it is very likely the same business. The Aug 2014 view has record cases, LPs and T-shirts on display in the window. There are photos of the interior on their Facebook page:
