There were loads of these around town, including the one in Kemp Town I mentioned, and a small one on St James’s Street immediately opposite Old Steine Gardens and next door to the small pub on that row (I’ve forgotten the name!). This Rediffusion specialised in the hire purchase side of sales. I bought my first record player (a Dansette box ) there in 1968, together with a copy of Pink Floyd’s first album and the singles ‘Arnold Layne’ and ‘See Emily Play’, ‘Magic Bus’ and ‘My Generation’ by The Who, and an early Pretty Things album, all for 29/11d payable over 18 months. That’s about £1.50!!!!
