In an age of earbuds and headphones, the communal aspect of music seems less prevalent than ever. The used record stores of Birmingham beg to differ. Listen in as we investigate their growing popularity and the place music has in today’s society. This episode features Marian McKay of Charlemagne Records, Gary Bourgeois and Jimmy Griffin of Renaissance Records, and Eric and Eugene Bates of Bates Brothers Recording Studios. The music in this episode was made and written by Samford student Kerry Joiner. Find more about our program at www.oralhistory.samford.com.
