And then we joined a record club for maybe a shilling a week.

Oh right and what did that do?

Well, records, you used to call them, what you used to call them?

The vinyl records … you used to swap them was it?

No, no, we used to buy them on the club dockets, you used to give a shilling a week off them and someone would run a club and you’d join it for a shilling a week. And the other shilling was for the chemist for your makeup and your sanitary … all you got was a lipstick, you know what I mean?

Yeah, you had to have your lipstick for going to the dancehall.
