Platters Ltd. Record Store Was Here (Dead Boys Appeared)


Platters Ltd. Record Store Was Here (Dead Boys Appeared)

Platters Ltd. record store was here in the late 1970s. See, for ex., http://www.library.upenn.edu/docs/kislak/dp/1978/1978_03_02.pdf, at 34th Street supplement, p. 10. Also, see https://www.newspapers.com/image/185365440/?terms=%22platters+ltd.%22. I remember the Dead Boy's greeting fans in the store in the late 70s. I don't remember when, and can't confirm online, although it may have coincided with the band playing the Hot Club at 21st and South on 10/10/77. I recall that the store cashier was Steve Dunn, who I think was in the Duplicators at the time, and later sang for the Ben Wah Torpedos.

4/1/19- I tie the Dead Boys' appearance here with an experience at the Sit and Spin Records' store a few days ago at https://www.roadsidehistoricalmarkers.com/location/item/11269-sit-and-spin-records-a-great-record-store-dead-boys/trendy_address=dead%20boys?rid=113
