Comment: I lived at Glanville Road, Strood until 1981. I used to get £1.10 pocket money every Friday after school, and I would go straight to Strood Record Centre. I remember in about 1979/80 a 7" single was also £1.10. You paid for the record & received these white tokens worth 10p each, that could be saved up until you had enough of them to exchange for a record of your choice. In 1979, aged nine years, I saved up 10 tokens & put them towards Blondie's Parallel Lines LP, which I'm sure cost £2.79 at the time. I still have the record today. Many fond memories from that shop. Happy days.

Comment: Bob Hope (seriously) and his mum ran this shop in the early 1970's. Bob had an Aston Martin.
