Comment: I worked at Mazel Radio from August 1961 until October 1967; yes you could buy literally everything electrical and photographic there. There was a variety of well-known customers who used that shop, situated on London Road just before Piccadilly. I once sold an amp to Denny Laine when he was still with the Moody Blues; Dave Lee Travis was a pal of the boss, Abe Dardick; The 5 Pennies, Tony Prince & Harry Worth turned up there; The Troggs stopped and asked directions to Manchester Palace; and even the notorious Ian Brady, and his pal David Smith along with his wife Myra Hindley's sister Maureen were customers.

I found this advert in the 'Manchester Evening News' dated 5th March 1954: “MAKE MAZEL'S YOUR RECORD RENDEZVOUS - DELETIONS, REJECTS, OPEN 10.30 a.m. TO 5.30 p.m. MAZEL RECORD LIBRARY, 124 LONDON RD., MANCHESTER 1.”
