  3. Think it’s the right decision and he deserves his chance I’ve seen enough of a change since his interim appointment to think he can turn it round we just need the takeover to be finalised now
  4. nowadays music is just a click away and completely mobile - who remembers 'Dial a Disc' from the sixties/seventies a service run by I guess the GPO back then whereby you could phone in (dialling 16 I googled that bit) to listen to a current chart record. The record changed daily. There was a short gap between the record being replayed and during these few seconds it was realised you could hear other participants on the line - with people shouting out messages and even phone numbers...
  5. You may find your bank will offer a dealing service alongside your current account online. You will need to apply/sign up and this will be a basic trading service with no advice etc but can be a good way to get started. Also easy to keep a check on how your portfolio is doing.

  12. we were taking about this show on the dcfcfans zoom last night - from where the 'Route One' label came from.

  13. Steve Zodiac & Co - great tv - Gerry Anderson stuff was fantastic
  14. record shops like these often had acoustic booths/hoods where you could listen to a requested track from a selected record - don't see one in this pic but from the speaker on the wall looks like they played to the whole shop. I seem to remember buying records in a shop like this on Derby market place between the market hall entrance and the Cornmarket corner coffee shop (Kardoma?) - anyone recall this shop
  15. Not bored at all @angierameven thinking about maybe getting a deck myself - and playing some of my few remaining albums picked up a tv after repair at a local workshop a few months ago the place was stacked out with decks and turntables - what’s with all these I asked the engineer, gone crazy during lockdown he said lots of people getting the old hi-fi out of the attic and recommissioned...
