Being a music fan & buying 45s at the local dime store to LPs at the local record store as a fan growing up, I jumped at the chance to work at a local record store. Next I opened a record store called Buncha Tapes & Records in Lafayette, LA. Then I went to Houston and was Operations Manager for the 113 store chain Sound Warehouse. Next I became the local RCA sales REP their in Houston, Thus opening the door to meet & sell the Greaser's lps. Next I was sent to MLPS, MN as the National Director of Sales for RCA ( which is now BMG/SONY), calling on Target, Best Buy, Sam Goody, Wal-Mart, KMART, BORDERS, etc.. Next I becames VP of SALES & MARKETING for RCA NASHVILLE, and ended my career back in MLPS as Regional Sales MGR for WINDHAM HILL RECORDS.
I retired in 2000 due to two failed back surgeries. In all I worked with over 700 artists ranging from James Gallaway, John Denver, Police, JUdds, etc.
