Talking of old record hops in Lancaster. Just been flicking through a box of unsorted 7's and was reminded of Simmons. It was on Common Garden Str. Sold really crap instruments and amps too.

My Mam bought me a Dannsette record player from th e Great John St .shop when I was 15 got it home the turntable went round but no sound,Took it back got charged 6 pound to fix it, got it home still no sound.My Uncle had a look &found we didn't have the volume switched on . Thick or what. Paid 6 quid for nothing.

I found this advert in the 'Lancaster Guardian' dated 2nd December 1955: “R. SIMMONS, RECORDS and PIANO SPECIALIST, 14 GREAT JOHN STREET, LANCASTER.”
