History of the Boulevard Drive-In Swap & Shop
According to their website, the Swap & Shop was started in June 1975. It gained a lot of attention in 1981 when the radio station, 61 County, sponsored a free Swap & Shop at the Drive In hosted by Jim Tyler and David Lawrence.
This event is credited with putting the Swap & Shop on the map.
