RIP Sam the Record Man

Back when Vancouver's Record Row still existed, I bought many, many CDs and VHS tapes at Sam the Record Man. The VHS tapes are long gone, but I still have a few CDs that I got there (I remember, at the very least, buying my first Masada CD there). The building where Sam the Record Man was on Seymour street still has door handles in the shape of red "S's," facing each other, which I'm sure mean next to nothing to the ESL school, or whatever it is, that it currently houses. I know nothing about Sam Sniderman but I spent too many hours shopping at his store not to mention his passing, at age 92. You had a good store, Sam, and it sounds like you did good things for Canadian music. Thanks!
