Yesterday With John Swain

Folks who lived in North Carolina during the pre-glory days of college rock and beyond, will remember John Swain of The Record Hole in Raleigh. The man who exemplified the classic record collector is shown here moving about the boxes of discs, talking with fellow buyers and sellers. Psst.. dig the kid in the Scientists t-shirt. Whatever became of him?
