All About Nashville: Mary Mancini, Lucy's Record Shop

My guest is Mary Mancini, a community activist and from 1992 to 1998 she was the founder and owner of Lucy’s Record Shop. We talk about this Sundays Lucy’s Record Shop 30th Anniversary show happening at DRKMTTR. On August 16, 1992 the world mourned the 15th anniversary of Elvis’ death. On that same day, Nashville welcomed the opening of a new record shop on Church Ave named “Revolutions Per Minute.” A few months later, RPM changed their name to Lucy’s Record Shop. The DIY-centric, independent venue had an outsized influence on Nashville and there are countless bands and attendees that remember it fondly.
