Thanks to Ed Eilbacher and Tony Latino for stopping by our room!  These two had a great story of how they worked together at a major record store in New Jersey when they were teenagers, lost contact for some years, then reconnected through music.  You may be seeing them in our Featured Members section soon…great conversation!
