Re: “Locals gather to share songs for Alex Chilton—and stories of his importance

The only place in Raleigh to buy records during the 80's was John Swain's. I remember I was rummaging one hot Summer day through his piles of Lp's and was discourage not to find much. Which was a surprise because usually one never left Swain's with out a stack of goodies. Well, he had some large speakers in the corner and a few records were lying on top. I pulled them off and lo and behold right there on the top was Big Star's Radio City! I gasped and hesitatingly asked John how much he wanted for the rare treasure. And remember there were no CD's and Radio City had not been reissued at the time. "Gimme five bucks" he barked. I gladly gave John the fiver and ran home to finally hear the record I had read so much about. I later became the envy of countless friends because I owned a Masterpiece that had touched us all that they could not find. We later saw Chilton play at the Brewery and were blown away.RIP old friend. CK
