Happy days at music library; Letters email@example.com.
I HAVE vivid memories of Cow Lane Chapel in the 1950s when it was used as a Music Record Library.
While a full price LP cost W more than 30s (12 weeks pocket money for me as a 15-year-old or nearly a day's wages for an average worker in 1958) it could be borrowed for 6d a week from the library.
-is meant that within a few years I got to experience the major masterpieces of classical , romantic and 20th century music, so laying the foundations for a lifetime of pleasure, consolation and excitement largely thanks to this remnant of old Coventry.
John Burgess, Milton Keynes.
