In 1969 Randy Stinson was stationed in Vietnam and had the idea to Open an “Oldies” Record Shop in Utah. Upon returning to Salt Lake City, he purchased an Older Home in the SLC Avenues with an Attached Store Front for the purpose of selling “Oldies”. Zoning had been changed and Randy's dream was delayed as he could not have a retail shop in the area. So Randy continued to buy and collect oldies singles by the thousands knowing he would have his store.
His Dream became a Reality when he Opened his doors for business on October 13th, 1978.
It really all began back in 1959, when Randy purchased his first record, a 45 rpm copy of Santo & Johnny’s “Sleepwalk”. By 1970, he had collected approximately 30,000 singles & a few hundred LP’s. Between 1970 & 1978 Randy bought every collection of 45’s he could find and by the time he opened in 1978 he had approximately 60,000 45 rpms (that's the seven inch record)!
