Sparks' Record Shop - a Memory of Worcester.

How many of you remember this shop at the Cathedral end of the High Street? I can recall how in the mid 50s, some of us from the Tech, at the Victoria Institute, would go there hot-foot at the end of school, to hear the latest Eddie Cochrane, Buddy Holly or Elvis. I remember how we would listen to any-or all - of the top ten on vinyl in one of the listening booths...and then leave, usually without buying any of them!

Yes, remember it well in 1940s when only 78s were available. Remember my pal, Geoff Bradley buying Khatchachurian's "Sabre Dance" & playing it over & over again on his wind-up record player.
