Inside the Record Store, 1979/1983

8/22/1979, Bob Eighmie/Miami Herald Staff: Lots of records at Peaches.

1/19/1984, Miami Herald Staff: Rose Ortiz, has worked at Peaches Records and Tapes store for about 5 months. She is seen in front of a John Travolta/Olivia Newton-John display. Fancy displays of multiple images are used in Peaches. The store was one of the seven in South Florida's "record store rows". The row, which extends from North Miami Beach Boulevard from I-95 to NE 15th Avenue, houses Open Books and Records; Peaches; Record Liquidators, 87 NE 167th St.; Vibrations, 269 NE 167th St.; Discount Records, 1364 NE 163rd St.; Spec's Music, 1205 NE 163rd St.; and Record Land.

The record store is Peaches. Have you forgotten Two of a Kind? Shame on you!

    Peaches returns. That’s a total “record store girl” look too, btw. I actually never heard of Two Of A Kind until this post, but then again, I wasn’t a big Grease fan either.
