​This writer was quite saddened to read the above article this week regarding the closure of Oldies Unlimited in Darlington Street, Wolverhampton on Tuesday 30th November (although it will continue online and at selected Midlands record fairs) and felt it would be apt to write a few words in fond memory of such a familiar friend. My first recollection of Oldies Unlimited would be picking up and flicking eagerly through the pages of their catalogue at Tom Hawkins Music Services in Oxley (another frequently visited establishment) or visiting the Oldies Unlimited shop (always rammed with vinyl) in Worcester Street. They were essentially a mail order franchise business back then based in nearby Telford and I remember ordering not a few ELO and related records in my early collecting days. A revamped Oldies Unlimited would later emerge in their current location and be a regular stop in my ever diminishing circuit of record shops in Wolverhampton city centre. Yours Truly KJS wishes Simon all the very best as he takes Oldies Unlimited into its new virtual home. Thanx for the memories!
