    In 1968 I purchased my first stereo system from an audio shop at the Quadrangle.

    I forget the name of the audio shop.

    I purchased a Kenwood Receiver, a Dual Turntable and two Frasier Speakers!!!

      Was it The Gramophone Shop? They also had a great folk music vinyl selection.

        Thanks for the reply!
        The Gramophone Shop and all those unique shops at the Quadrangle were so cool to browse and shop at.
        The neat little antique shops that lines the street, the smell of

        Patchouli and scented candles; in the background the music of The Strawberry Alarm Clock and Peter, Paul and Mary!
        It was a menagerie of all things!!!

          Does anyone remember the name of the Bakery in the Quadrangle back then??
