I used to work in the clothing shop next door to Listen. Our stock room was in the basement. Down there the two stores were only separated by a door. Half the staff of our shop would make excuses to look for something downstairsjust to listen to the sounds from next door.
I remember Listen going all in for CDs when they were first introduced. I believe this changed the feel of the place. It didn't last too long after that.
There was another good record shop on Redfield Street. I can't remember what it was called. It was in the basement of a lamp/lighting shop. Anyone?
I think i remember the other one, i bought my C>B radio out of it, forget what it was called. its a shame listen closed, as it was a special place you could just hang out in.
Bought my first ever record out of that shop. I wish i could say it was Led zeppelin or something. But it was moldy old dough by Lieutenant pigeon.
