Maroons Tunes, a great Greek St Shop, many people worked behind the counter - Leroy Anderson, later Mr Dread Broadcasting Corp. Paul Bradshaw founder of Straight No Chaser magazine.
I also helped out in Honest Jon’s reggae outlet, ‘Maroon’s Tunes’ in Greek Street, London W.1. That shop – the first to import Bullwackie’s music from New York – was run by Rae Cheddie, and assisted by Leroy Anderson aka Lepke. Lepke was the first pirate deejay in London, for the Dread Broadcasting Corporation [DBC] – he’s also related to Rita Marley [nee Anderson] and Ranking Miss P, who had a long-running reggae show on BBC Radio London. When Rae or Lepke had a day off, I covered for them. That’s where I first met Peter Dalton, with whom I co-wrote “The Rough Guide To Reggae”. Steve Barrow
I wish it was still there, huge speakers each side of the door.
