Way to go Roy!! Some of my favorite memories are going into McPherson Music as a teenager and looking at the drums! Even though I had long hair, jeans with holes in them and a leather jacket (it was the 80's!!) Roy and Tina always treated me with respect and worked with me so that I could purchase the drums I wanted.

To this day whenever I am in Ketchikan I always make it a point to stop in and say hi to them both. I can never thank them enough. Congratulations Roy!!
