The Rocktard. Always sharp and witty.

He would often get me admission tickets for their infamous warehouse sales. Imagine 8 or 9 quonset huts in a row, front and back doors open for ventilation, rows and aisles inside loaded with regular-stock LP's, 7.99 list, 3 bucks a pop. Most of the big labels. Ya know those pictures in the insets of TV Guide of the Columbia Record Club? Usually a delirious young girl holding a load of rekkids, half spilling out of her arms? That was the semi-annual Warehouse Sale.
I was on my first out-of-town radio gig in Evansville when they started paring-back on Record plant staff, and my first morning gig in Louisville when DADC opened. I imagined half the old pressing plant gone, replaced by Space-Age buildings and a local economy with stars in the workers' eyes, being part of The Futurrre!
But no; every time I visited my old home town, it just looked a little bit more bleak. But, my condolences to those who chose to stay there, and not move out into the world. And now will have nothing better to do but sit on the couch, rolling a fat one, and wonder how far out of town they're gonna have to re-locate to find work they're qualified to do.
A Trump voater!

Marshall and STEVE could have saved the CD industry. Think about it.
