The Best Little Record Shop – Record Village (Scunthorpe)

When I started out as a DJ in 1987 I had a choice of several places in Scunthorpe to buy records from.

Our Price, Woolworths, WH Smith, Boots but my favourite record shop of them all was Record Village a small independent record shop that was just amazing

Record Village opened around 1976 and had 3 shops at one point, the main one 133 High Street, 49 Wrawby Street in Brigg and a small shop at 13 Collum Lane Ashby.

Bad Software Practices?

I really wish certain users on the Internet would keep their “opinions” about me to themselves.

I’ve recently been accused of “Bad Software Practices” because of the way I promote RadioDJ over other paid for software.
