I started out working as a delivery guy in a non-chain drug store in 1976. I made $1.87 an hour. I drove around alot, and the drug store had a tremendous liquor business. I spent alot of time delivering liquor. I would drive around with cases of liquor iin the back of a hatchback to all the rich folks houses. Never once did a cop pull me over with all that booze in the car. That had to be illegal as heck!
This store (in Rushville, In) was back then (in pre-Ticketmaster days) a Reds ticket outlet. Gordy Coleman would stop in occaisionally and chat while making his rounds. He was a really jovial guy.
