Name Dave Mallard Comment: Worked in Rival Park Street '77-'84 - Park Street was full of independent shops: records shops, clothes (clobber, head on etc etc) books (chapter&verse). record shops like Rival, Revolver and Tonys were big social centres - no internet no mobiles! - and its where people met , chatted about music, fashion , gigs , clubs. Late 70's had every music genre buzzing from punk to bristol sound to p-funk, avante garde jazz, electro, some of the best roots and dub years. Twin cassette decks and WBLS tapes in '81! Good Times.

A good shop where I bought my records in the 70s. When the bomb exploded in The Corridor, the shop took quite a hit and I remember them selling damaged records cheap.
