Mike Applebee just reminded me that back in 1973, several of us bought copies of Golden Earring's 'Radar Love' single from a couple of school prefects for 15 pence a copy. My memory is hazy but I vaguely remember playing football out on the playing fields and then being distracted by a small crowd forming around a cardboard box full of vinyl 45s.
I don't even know if I'd heard of Golden Earring before but I bought one anyway so as not to miss out, just in case it was any good.
Little did any of us know that it would go down in history as a classic rock standard.
Where did the prefects get them from though?
