Comment I worked as a resident disc jockey at Franco's in Egham through 1971 and 1972. I bought most of my records at Record Wise then. I cannot remember the shop keeper's name but he was incredibly helpful allowing me to audition all the new releases in a back room. Wonderful memories, great times. Name Andy Miles (2018) Comment Happy memories of Record Wise in Egham. Adam was a great guy, his knowledge of the record scene was immense. I've probably still got some 45's I purchased from him. Is he still with us?

Comment I spent a lot of time in Record Wise in the early 70s. Do you remember that Adam (King was his surname, lived over the crossing on the way to Pooley Green) ran a service where you could borrow records from the stock? He kept a card index of who had what. There were also a few instruments and amps for sale. Name Tim White (2021)
Comment Was in their once when Frank Muir (famous comedy scriptwriter with Denis Norden at the time) buying a jazz record. Did he not move the store to the other end of Egham High Street at some point? Name Dennis Morgan (2021)
