I worked in Musicraft 1972-73.The shop inside was painted black and had a section at the back which sold Hi-Fi. The record section had headphones on the walls so buyers could listen to the records. When I was at school I would often go in just to listen on headphones and to experience the sound within your head that headphones could only give.
My Dad, Ray Hatch, worked at Musicraft in Hounslow. As a child I remember visiting him at work and once helping him out behind the counter. All that wall-to-wall vinyl, the listening booths (I was not tall enough) and the B&O hifi at the back. Dad is finally retiring at the age of 86 in a weeks time and we’re looking for old memories to help him celebrate; if you can share anything that would be wonderful!
