Easy Street Music Night In Memory Of George Romansic

Every so often, we get some of the staff together along with a handful of fellow music/vinyl enthusiasts and have a little listening party after hours at the shop. It's a great opportunity to turn each other on to some great music, have fun, and get some education in the process. Last Sunday, we gathered to pay respects to our friend and colleague George Romansic, a longtime Seattle musician (The Beakers, Three Swimmers, Danger Bunny, Little Bears from Bangkok) and record distributor, who was also one of the nicest guys in the biz. Period. George lost his long battle with brain cancer on January 25th. George often joined in on these listening sessions, contributing an amazing variety of great spins and stories. We raised a glass to him last night and commenced with the sharing, and now we wish to share our playlist with you!
