For our 50th show, Michael Driver comes back for more with your erstwhile Beer Dads! Tim, Jon, and Paul tease out of Michael why his daughter will have the best appreciation for music. Seems that our friend had in the early 90’s a nightclub, then he wised up and opened a less stressful record/music shop, Crunchy Music Stuff, in Greensboro, NC. From 1993-2000 Michael and his partner kept the hub of the underground music scene in GSO, and upon selling the store in 2000, Michael left retail forever. You can read his epic line about why he sold out in this Greensboro News & Record article.
Through a variety of tastes, from Flaming Lips to Mötorhead to Miles Davis, Michael extols the virtue of variety, and exposure to music and how it shapes our everyday lives. We talked about his store, his club, and the other bits and bytes of the transition from 8-track to today’s digital downloads. Won’t you come listen?
