Mark Germino, Tonight at Bluebird Cafe

I drove a guy from the airport to the hotel today who really made my day. He flew into Nashville from Detroit just to see Mark Germino play a gig tonight. We shared a seven-minute conversation that took me back to my old record store days in the coolest possible way.

I really miss hanging out with music-obsessed folks like me.

I'm working tonight so I won't be able to see Germino play this time. I've seen him several times and he's always awesome. Here's hoping that the hotel guest I met has a wonderful time at the show.

When I told him to have a great stay in Nashville, he replied by saying, "I'm having a great time already. You're a part of that."

Made my day.

Aww, that is so cool!! I've seen Germino, I don't know how many times, but it has been years ago. My social life has been on hold with the family being in town. It would have been nice to see him again. Keep doing what you do, Mike. You never know when you will have an impact or make a difference in someone's life. :)
