Happy memories...

I AM sure Ian Hart will have received many letters about the record shop near the Odeon cinema.

It was in fact Mansfield’s, situated roughly where McDonald’s is now.

I remember it with affection because you could listen to any records you were interested in at their “music bar” before actually buying them.

It was there where I first heard Kathleen Ferrier and was completely bowled over by her wonderful voice which was truly unique.
