  9. Hi Cliff I was a trainee manager at the Southchurch Co-op in tha sixtees and ran the record department(one counter) because no one new about pop music,the manager a Mr Plackett made me order in Jim Reeves records so he could take them home to listen to them and would return them two weeks later.
