Radio/tv dealers - posted by Alan
Although it is relatively recent, details about the various radio and television shops that filled our High Streets in the 1950-1980 era is already hard to find.

There were many Radio, and later, TV rental and retail chains, quite apart from the many local companies.

Before details about them gets lost, I am attempting to write a potted history, or at least, some information, about all the major chains of radio and /or television outlets.


If you have any information about any of the companies concerned, or any others that I may have forgotten, please let me know.

Good afternoon,I don't know if this will be of any help,but back in around the early 1950's my father managed a t.v.and radio shop,it was located in Staines High Street,Middlesex and the name of the shop was 'Mac Stone' I cant remember that far back sadly to be able to tell you if it was a one off shop,or whether It was part of a chain.However I hope this information helps you.
Regards Terry
