Music fan Robert Rowan started work at Rumbelows, Great Charlotte Street, in 1972, then moving to Whitechapel in 1975.
He says: “It was the most sought-after job for teenagers at that time. Just being able to listen to good music of the 70s. I worked in the basement where customers could listen to the vinyls before they bought them. Regular customers included The Real Thing, Linda Lewis, Les Gray from Mud, and Ray Clemence.”
