Today is truly the day that the music has died. Charles Rigolosi, owner of Platter World Records in Garfield NJ has passed away. Charlie was my mentor not only in music but with education in general. My first job was at his store, learning about all types of music and taking store credit for pay. The two bottom pictures are from today, when I visited his store for the last time and even though I cried when I drove back, I will remember forever that music is the most powerful thing on this Earth, and that’s all because of Charlie.
