In 1980 I returned to Ann Arbor and with the help of Pell Grants successfully concluded my undergrad work in English Literature. When I returned to college I told myself it would be nice to get involved with radio and that I should keep my eyes peeled for the opportunity to open a record store. In the fall of 1981 my brother, Jeff, my friend, P.J. Ryder, and I opened PJ's Used Records, which survives to this day in our little corner of the world at Packard and State in Ann Arbor. A year later I was recruited by a friend to host a jazz program at WCBN-FM the student-run alternative radio service at the University of Michigan.
