Here’s a good challenge for us, thrown down by an offlist note and video from Townsman Diskojoe:

Go to 1:22 of this except from an old Dobie Gillis episode. I think this was probably the first time a record store was featured in a sitcom:

I know you folks know more than I will ever know about rock ‘n roll, but do you know more than Diskojoe? Can you find an earlier example of record store hipsters on TV?

I look forward to being dazzled by your knowledge.

    No hipsters here (well, portrayed, anyhow) – and this is a film – but very interesting nonetheless:

    Featuring Mel Blanc, Billy May, Dean Martin, Les Paul and Mary Ford.

  3. Another movie but there is a record store in one of the b&w Hitchcock movies. I think it was Strangers on a Train.

  4. Like Far out video man.Dig that crazy Hi Fi.
