History
IN THE EARLY MONTHS OF 2017 THE MUSIC FRANCHISE, HMV CANADA, BEGAN TO THE PROCESS OF CLOSING DOWN ALL 120 OF THEIR STORES ACROSS CANADA. AFTER 30 YEARS OF BUSINESS, THE COMPANY WENT INTO RECEIVERSHIP. PARK PLACE MALL IN DOWNTOWN LETHBRIDGE HAD AN HMV LOCATION OF ITS OWN, WHICH OPENED IN 1994. THIS COMPACT DISC (CD) WAS ON SALE AT HMV AT THE TIME OF CLOSING. THE BAND, ATROPHY MANUSCRIPT, WAS A LETHBRIDGE-BASED ALTERNATIVE/EMO ROCK BAND. THE CD IS TITLED, "THIS PRESENT DAY CONFUSION," AND WAS THE BAND’S SECOND RECORDED ALBUM. ACCORDING TO THE LABEL ATTACHED TO THE FRONT OF THE CD COVER, THE ALBUM WAS RECORDED AT A STUDIO CALLED THE HIVE IN BURNABY, B.C. THE ALBUM WAS EITHER RECORDED IN 2006 (LABEL ON ALBUM COVER) OR 2008 (LETHBRIDGE HERALD ARTICLES). ACCORDING TO THE BAND’S MYSPACE PAGE (WWW.MYSPACE.COM/ATROPHYMANUSCRIPT, ACCESSED 15 AUGUST 2017), THE BAND WAS ACTIVE FROM 2003 UNTIL 2009. ON 27 FEBRUARY 2017, IN AN INTERVIEW WITH COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN, THE MANAGER OF THE HMV LETHBRIDGE, BRENDAN FRIZZLEY, REFLECTED ON HIS PAST EXPERIENCE AT THE MUSIC STORE, THE SIGNIFICANCE OF MUSIC STORES, AND ON THE RECEIVERSHIP PERIOD. FOR MORE INFORMATION OF THAT PERIOD, AS WELL AS FRIZZLEY’S RELATIONSHIP WITH THE STORE, PLEASE SEE P20170004001. DURING THE INTERVIEW, FRIZZLEY REFLECTED ON THE NATURE OF PEOPLES’ RELATIONSHIPS WITH MUSIC STORES. HE EXPLAINED, “… IT’S THE STRANGEST SORT OF STORE BECAUSE IF YOU WENT INTO A GROCERY STORE AND THEY HAD EXPANDED THEIR ORGANIC SECTION YOU WOULDN’T BE OFFENDED… [BUT] WITH MUSIC STORES, IT DOESN’T MATTER IF YOU’RE A 16-YEAR-OLD LISTENING TO PUNK MUSIC, OR A EARLY-20’S METAL GUY, OR AN OLD PERSON LISTENING TO THE GENRE CLASSICAL... THERE’S THIS FEELING THAT WHENEVER ANYTHING IS ASSAULTED, IN TERMS OF MUSIC, LIKE, 'HEY, THE METAL SECTION WENT FROM LIKE 8 FEET OF SPACE TO 12 FEET OF SPACE." WE DIDN’T ACTUALLY ADD ANY PRODUCT, BUT THE METAL GUYS WILL BE ECSTATIC, BECAUSE CLEARLY WE HAD DONE THIS THING THAT HAD MADE IT BETTER. WE CARED ABOUT THEM… AND SIMILARLY, WHEN THE PUNK GUYS LOST THAT SPACE AND WENT FROM 8 FEET OF SPACE TO 4 FEET OF SPACE, THEY WERE LIKE 'YOU KNOW, YOU GUYS JUST DON’T HAVE THE SAME SORT OF SELECTION YOU USED TO.' BUT IT’S THE PERCEPTION OF [HOW MUCH PEOPLE CARE ABOUT THEIR MUSIC] AND THAT’S ALWAYS SORT OF BEEN IT... YOU KNOW, PEOPLE ARE OFFENDED BY MUSIC THAT THAT THEY DON’T LIKE BEING IN A STORE. THE AMOUNT OF TIMES I CAN REMEMBER A NEW JUSTIN BIEBER COMING OUT, AND GOING UP TO THE FRONT OF THE STORE, AND BEING LIKE 'WELL WHAT’S GOING ON HERE?' AND SOMEONE HAD TAKEN MY ENTIRE IRON MAIDEN SECTION AND PUT IT IN FRONT OF EACH JUSTIN BIEBER CD. I CAN’T FATHOM ANYBODY BEING INVESTED IN ANY SORT OF OTHER PURCHASE WHERE THEY WOULD BE LIKE 'THIS SORT OF THING OFFENDS ME...' I CAN’T IMAGINE FEELING THAT WAY ABOUT A PARTICULAR BRAND OF KETCHUP OR A PARTICULAR CAR, OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT…" SPEAKING ABOUT THE TYPICAL HMV SHOPPER FRIZZLEY SAID, "THERE’S THIS NARRATIVE THAT PEOPLE WANT TO [BE] THE OLD, DYING CD BUYER... THERE’S ALWAYS PEOPLE WHO COME IN, AND SAY THINGS LIKE, 'OH, I JUST DON’T DO THE DIGITAL,' - [BUT ALSO] 'OH, I HAVE A CD PLAYER IN MY TRUCK, SO THAT’S THE ONLY REASON I’M BUYING CD’S TODAY,' AND THAT’S ALWAYS BEEN A SUBSECTION OF WHAT WE SELL TO - BUT, I THINK THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE JUST WANT TO HAVE THAT PHYSICAL CONNECTION WITH THE THING THAT THEY LIKE. AND THAT [TYPE OF] PERSON DIDN’T DIE, BUT THEY ALSO WEREN’T MARKETED TO BY ALL THE MARKETING... SO THAT’S SORT OF WHY THE FOOTPRINT OF CDS SHRUNK. IT WASN’T TO ASSAULT WHAT THEY WANTED, BECAUSE THEY WERE COMING IN [AND] BUYING SPECIFIC THINGS, OR COMING UP AND ORDERING SPECIFIC TITLES THAT THEY’VE ALREADY PUT THEIR RESEARCH INTO. THEY WANT THIS TOKEN OF WHAT THEY LIKE (WHICH IS THE PHYSICAL CD). AND ANYTIME THAT ANY AFFRONT HAPPENED TO CDS, THEY TOOK IT SO PERSONALLY…" AS THE SALE OF CDS DECREASED WITH THE ADVENT OF DIGITAL CONTENT AND STREAMING SERVICES, FRIZZLEY NOTED THAT SOME POSITIVES EMERGED. HE SAID, “THE POSITIVES ARE THAT BARRIERS ARE BROKEN DOWN. YOU KNOW THE FACT THAT BANDCAMP IS HUGE; THAT LITERALLY ANYBODY CAN MAKE MUSIC, AND CAN MAKE IT AVAILABLE IS SO COOL. YOU’VE GOT SHAWN MENDES RIGHT NOW, WHO IS VINE FAMOUS... [MEANING], ‘I MAKE SHORT VIDEO CLIPS OF ME SINGING SONGS AND THAT’S GOING TO LEAD INTO THIS MASSIVE CAREER.' THAT’S SURREAL… [AND] I THINK IT LETS PEOPLE FEEL MORE CONNECTED TO THEIR MUSIC... IT CHANGES THE WAY THAT PEOPLE SORT OF PERCEIVE THEIR CONNECTION TO IT. PEOPLE LOVE THE IDEA OF BEING A PART OF SOMETHING...” FRIZZLEY WENT ON TO DISCUSS THE SHIFT IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, “I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THAT THERE’S MORE POSITIVES THAN THAT, BUT I REALLY THINK THE MUSIC INDUSTRY MADE A SYSTEM THAT IS NOT GOING TO BE FINANCIALLY VIABLE FOR A LOT OF MUSICIANS. IF YOU LOOK AT STREAMING, - WHICH IS GREAT - [BUT] I DON'T THINK PEOPLE REALIZE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SPOTIFY AND NETFLIX. WHEN YOU DO NETFLIX, IT’S MOVIES THAT HAVE ALREADY HAD THEIR THEATRE RUN; ALREADY MADE THEIR BILLIONS OF DOLLARS; ALREADY HAD A CHANCE TO BE SOLD, WHETHER DIGITALLY OR PHYSICALLY, AND THEN FINALLY END UP ON NETFLIX. SPOTIFY [IS LIKE], ‘HEY, IT’S $10.00 A MONTH AND HERE’S ALL THE MUSIC FOREVER.’ SPOTIFY ROYALTIES AREN’T ENOUGH. EVERYONE KNOWS THEY’RE NOT ENOUGH, BUT I THINK PEOPLE HAVE IN THEIR HEADS THAT ALL THE MUSIC FOREVER IS WORTH $10.00 A MONTH… MUSIC HAS NO VALUE ANYMORE. LIVE MUSIC DOES AND THE PHYSICAL TOKENS DO, AND THAT’S WHY VINYL IS SEEING THIS RESURGENCE, BUT MUSIC HAS NO VALUE. AND I THINK PART OF THAT [IS] BECAUSE OF THE RADIO, [WHICH IS] SORT OF HOW MUSIC HAPPENED; HOW WE’VE LISTENED TO MUSIC. SO RADIO HAPPENS, AND YOU CAN LISTEN TO RADIO FOR FREE, BUT YOU STILL HAVE TO BUY THE RECORDS. AND IT WORKED. BUT NOW WE STILL HAVE THIS IDEA THAT ‘WELL, THE TECHNOLOGY EXISTS FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO LISTEN TO THE RADIO, AND CHOOSE WHAT I LISTEN TO ON THE RADIO... SO I SHOULD BE ABLE TO CHOOSE WHAT I LISTEN TO, BUT I STILL WANT THAT PREMISE OF FREE MUSIC’… I DON’T KNOW HOW THE WORLD IS ABLE TO FINANCIALLY COMPENSATE YOU FOR MAKING YOUR MUSIC, AND I DON’T KNOW IF IT NECESSARILY NEEDS TO. ART WILL ALWAYS EXIST REGARDLESS WHETHER OR NOT THERE’S PEOPLE PAYING FOR IT. BUT IT DOESN’T CHANGE THE FACT THAT WHEN YOU ARE ABLE TO COMPENSATE PEOPLE, THEY CAN FOCUS ON THEIR ART FULL TIME, [AND] YOU END UP WITH JUST BETTER QUALITY.” PLEASE SEE PERMANENT RECORD FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, INCLUDING THE FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPT AND ARTICLES REGARDING THE RECEIVERSHIP AND LIQUIDATION OF HMV CANADA.

ORGAN BELONGED TO JOB REED, AN EARLY RESIDENT OF LETHBRIDGE WHO ESTABLISHED A MARKET GARDEN ON S.W. CORNER OF PRESENT DAY 6 AVE & 13 ST SO. (5 1/4 ACRES). WIFE MARY GAVE ORGAN MUSIC LESSONS. ORGAN SHIPPED TO THE OKANAGAN BY HIS GRANDDAUGHTER, MRS. ANNIE MCCORMICK. LATER DONATED TO THE KELOWNA MUSEUM BY FAMILY MEMBER AFTER ANNIE MCCORMICK DIED. JOB REED DIED APRIL 21 1906. AT THE TIME OF HIS DEATH HE ALSO OWNED THE EDGEHILL FARM ON SIX MILE COULEE, WHICH HE ACQUIRED FROM REV. G.J.C. WHITE. REED PROVIDED FARM & MARKET GARDEN PRODUCE & EQUIPMENT TO LETHBRIDGE. HE ALSO PROVIDED POULTRY, EGGS & DAIRY PRODUCTS. REED WAS BORN IN ENGLAND, NOV. 12 1841. HE HAD 7 CHILDREN & WAS ACTIVE IN COMMUNITY AFFAIRS & BELONGED TO NUMEROUS ORGANIZATIONS. BEFORE IMMIGRATING TO CANADA HE WAS A CERTIFIED TEACHER IN ENGLAND. HE IMMIGRATED 1ST TO TEXAS, BUT NOT FINDING THE CLIMATE HEALTHY, RETURNED TO ENGLAND, THEN IMMIGRATED TO CANADA, EVENTUALLY, AFTER WORKING FOR THE C.P.R. ARRIVING IN LETHBRIDGE TO SETTLE IN 1887. HIS RESIDENCE ON 6 AVE., A STONE BUILDING., IS STILL IN USE TODAY. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING ONE ASSOCIATED WITH THE REED FAMILY. THE FOLLOWING BIOGRAPHY OF JOB REED WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM AN ARTICLE ON THE REED FAMILY AND FARM FROM THE DECEMBER 30, 1985 ISSUE OF THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD, REED'S DEATH ANNOUNCEMENT FROM 1906, AND THE GALT ARCHIVES. JOB REED WAS BORN IN SOMERSETSHIRE, ENGLAND ON NOVEMBER 12, 1841. WHEN HE WAS 14, HIS FATHER DIED, LEAVING JOB THE RESPONSIBILITY OF PROVIDING FOR HIMSELF AND HIS WIDOWED MOTHER. HE WORKED FOR THE BRITISH POSTAL SERVICE AND COMPLETED HIS TEACHING CERTIFICATION. HE MARRIED MARY ELIZABETH HOBBS IN 1869, AND IMMIGRATED TO THE UNITED STATES IN 1873, MOVING FROM NEW ORLEANS TO TEXAS AND THEN PENNSYLVANIA, WHERE REED OBTAINED A DEGREE IN MEDICINE. THE COUPLE RETURNED TO ENGLAND, BUT REED'S MEDICAL TRAINING WAS NOT RECOGNIZED THERE, AND IN 1882 THEY CROSSED THE ATLANTIC AGAIN, MOVING WEST ACROSS CANADA IN STAGES, FINALLY ARRIVING IN LETHBRIDGE IN 1886. THE FAMILY HAD SEVEN CHILDREN: RICHARD, HENRY, ELIZABETH (WHO MARRIED GEORGE HERBERT WATSON), JOB JUNIOR (KNOWN AS BUDD), GEORGE, ANNIE, AND ELLA. REED PURCHASED TWO LOTS ON WHAT IS NOW 6TH AVENUE SOUTH. THE FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED A MARKET GARDEN ON THE PROPERY, AND BUILT A STONE DUPLEX THAT STILL STANDS ON THE 1200 BLOCK OF 6TH AVENUE. REED WORKED AS A COAL MINER TO EARN MORE MONEY TOWARDS INVESTING IN FURTHER LAND, AND RAISED PIGS WITH SCRAP FOOD FROM THE NEARBY RCMP BARRACKS. IN 1901, REED PURCHASED 2.5 SECTIONS OF LAND NEAR PRESENT-DAY GRANUM WITH HIS FOUR SONS AND ONE SON-IN-LAW; HIS SON BILLY LATER TOOK OVER THIS RANCH. REED WAS A JUSTICE OF THE PEACE IN LETHBRIDGE AND A MEMBER OF THE SCHOOL BOARD. IN EARLY 1906, HE PURCHASED EDGEHILL FARM, NEAR SIX MILE COULEE, BUT HE DIED LATER THAT YEAR ON APRIL 25. MARY REED LIVED AT THE FARM FOR YEARS AFTERWARD, AND DIED IN KELOWNA, B.C. IN 1932 AT HOME OF ONE OF HER SONS. BOTH JOB AND MARY REED ARE BURIED IN MOUNTAIN VIEW CEMETERY IN LETHBRIDGE.

ON JANUARY 29, 2019, COLLECTIONS TECHNICIAN KEVIN MACLEAN INTERVIEWED ROD SCHULTZ REGARDING HIS DONATION OF A MODEL X779ES SONY CD PLAYER. SCHULTZ DISCUSSED HOW HE ACQUIRED THE CD PLAYER, “I PURCHASED THIS IN 1994… SONY HAD A BRAND CALLED ES AND THAT’S THE VERY TOP LINE OF THEIR STEREO SYSTEMS … I HAD HEARD THEM BEFORE – I HEARD THIS ONE PARTICULAR UNIT AND I WANTED TO BUY IT. THEN SONY DECIDED THEY WERE GOING TO NOT BE INVOLVED IN MARKETING THOSE HIGH-END PRODUCTS ANYMORE BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T REALLY SEE… A CONTINUATION OF CD’S COMING BECAUSE EVERYTHING WAS GOING TO DIGITAL STREAMING - PEOPLE WEREN’T GOING TO BE BUYING THESE. I WENT OUT AND LISTENED TO THESE UNITS. I COMPARED THEM AND CAME BACK PROBABLY 10 TIMES BEFORE I HEARD THIS UNIT AND I WAS CERTAIN THIS WAS THE ONE I WANTED TO HAVE. MY WIFE WASN’T THRILLED BUT I WAS PREPARED TO MAKE SOME SACRIFICES FOR THAT. WHAT HAPPENED IS THAT I WAS GOING TO BUY IT AND THEN SONY DECIDED THAT THEY WERE GOING TO SHUT DOWN THE STORES THAT THEY HAD IN CANADA. THEY SHUT DOWN THE LETHBRIDGE ONE FIRST. THIS WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT WAS LEFT IN CANADA AND THERE WAS STILL ONE AVAILABLE IN MEDICINE HAT. I DROVE TO MEDICINE HAT AND I BOUGHT IT THERE BECAUSE THEY WOULDN’T SHIP IT FROM MEDICINE HAT TO THE [LETHBRDIGE] STORE THAT WAS GOING TO BE CLOSING. I TOLD THEM, I SAID, “I TELL YOU, I’M COMING TODAY. DO NOT SELL THAT UNIT ON ME.” “PEOPLE WOULD SAY, ‘YOU SPENT $2400 ON A COMPACT DISC PLAYER. THERE IS NO WAY IT CAN BE WORTH THAT KIND OF MONEY.’ I’D SAY, ‘I’LL TELL YOU WHAT, YOU HAVE COMPACT DISCS. YOU BRING YOUR VERY FAVORITE OVER AND LISTEN TO IT SEVERAL TIMES AT YOUR HOUSE AND YOU COME OVER AND YOU LISTEN TO MINE.’ THEY SAID, ‘I CAN’T BELIEVE THE DIFFERENCE. IF SOMEONE HAD TOLD ME THAT I’D HAVE SAID, “NO, IT’S NOT POSSIBLE FOR THERE TO BE THAT KIND OF DIFFERENCE BUT I UNDERSTAND WHY YOU ARE DEVOTED TO BUYING …I FINALLY HEARD THIS WAS THE CREAM OF THE CROP.”’ AND THAT’S WHY I DECIDED THAT WAS THE ONE I WAS GOING TO OWN…AFTER I FOUND IT I DIDN”T BELIEVE IT COULD BE ANY BETTER AND I JUST…TREATED IT THE BEST I COULD.” “IT WAS A THRILL TO OWN THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT. I USED TO SPEND 4 HOURS A DAY LISTENING TO MUSIC. WHEN THE KIDS WENT TO BED, I HAD MY QUIET TIME AND THAT’S WHEN I KIND OF FELL OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH...” “IT STARTED TO FAIL ABOUT NINE MONTHS AGO... YOU MIGHT HAVE TO SHUT THE ON/OFF BUTTON ON TWICE TO FINALLY GET IT TO RUN, AND THEN IT FINALLY WOULD RUN [BUT] IT WOULD NEVER QUIT PART OF THE WAY THROUGH. IT BECAME SOMETHING THAT WAS PERFECT THAT ALL OF A SUDDEN WAS NO LONGER PERFECT.” “I THOUGHT MAYBE THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG WITH [THE] OTHER COMPONENTS THAT WERE HOOKED TO IT SO I HAD THE AMPLIFIER CHECKED OUT, THE PRE-AMPLIFIER, EVERYTHING ELSE WAS FINE. THERE’S A GUY…WHO WAS AN ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN THAT OWNED THE SAME PLAYER IN CALGARY… I USED TO GO UP TO CALGARY TO VISIT THIS GUY, AND HE HAD THE SAME ISSUE WITH THE SAME PLAYER, WITH HIS, AND HE WAS NEVER ABLE TO FIX IT…HE TOLD ME IT WAS A DONE DEAL, THERE’S NOTHING I CAN DO ABOUT IT. [I ALMOST HAD TO GO THROUGH A LEVEL OF GRIEVING AND LOTS OF DENIAL] I COULDN’T BELIEVE IT HAPPENED, SO I FINALLY BOUGHT THE REPLACEMENT THROUGH SMITH’S AUDIO.” ON THE ORIGINS OF HIS LOVE FOR MUSIC, SCHULTZ RECALLED, “…I FIRST GOT INTERESTED IN CLASSICAL MUSIC… BECAUSE OF MY FATHER-IN-LAW. HE WAS THE COOLEST GUY IN THE WORLD… WHEN I FINALLY GOT THROUGH SCHOOL AND I STARTED TO PAY ATTENTION TO LISTEN TO MUSIC SERIOUSLY. [I CAME TO LETHBRIDGE] IN 1977 AND I USED TO TAKE OUT 30 LPs AT THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEK AND 30 LPs AT THE END OF THE WEEK AND I WOULD…EXPLORE DIFFERENT COMPOSERS IN LETHBRIDGE – SO I WOULD BORROW THEM FROM THERE AND I WOULD LISTEN TO THEM ON MY PHONOGRAPH… I WAS ABLE TO DETERMINE EXACTLY WHICH COMPOSERS I LIKED AND MUSIC I LIKED, WHICH WERE THE REALLY GOOD ORCHESTRAS. I DEVELOPED THIS REPERTOIRE OF MUSIC THAT… JUST MADE MY SKIN HOT.” “I’M ALMOST POSITIVE THAT [THE FIRST CD I BOUGHT] WAS… A PIECE OF MUSIC BY BACH…IT WAS AN OBOE CONCERTO, IN AN OBOE ENVIRONMENT. IT WAS [AN] ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS PIECE OF MUSIC... I STILL HAVE IT TODAY AND IT PLAYS BEAUTIFULLY. I LISTEN TO IT ONCE A MONTH.” “I HAVE A LOT OF COMPACT DISCS, PROBABLY 450 THAT ARE PRIMARILY CLASSICAL ONES… I TRY TO PICK MUSIC BY WELL-KNOWN COMPOSERS, BEAUTIFUL THINGS, I CALL IT EAR CANDY AND THAT[‘S] WHAT IT IS TO ME. IT IS SOMETHING THAT CAN BRING ME TO TEARS, THAT I CAN BE EMOTIONALLY ATTACHED TO IT…TO ME IT’S LIKE A SOOTHER FOR AN ADULT. THIS IS MAYBE A STRANGE THING TO SAY, BUT IT GIVES ME GREAT JOY. I WOULD RATHER BE BLIND THAN TO LOSE MY HEARING BECAUSE IF I LISTEN TO MUSIC, I’D BE CRYING RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU… I REALLY BELIEVE IN MY HEART THAT COMPOSERS ARE A GIFT FROM GOD.” “IT DOES SOMETHING TO ME…I MEAN, I’VE GOT A BEAUTIFUL WIFE, BEST FAMILY, NICE HOME BUT THIS IS STILL A HUGE PART OF MY LIFE AND MY MENTAL HEALTH.” “SOMETIMES I THINK FOR PEOPLE [MUSIC IS] JUST NOISE IN THE BACKGROUND, BUT…IF I SIT ON THE SOFA AND I LISTEN TO MUSIC, IT’S ALMOST LIKE I ELEVATE FROM THE GROUND. I’M NOT A CRAZY PERSON BUT IT JUST TAKES ME TO A DIFFERENT REALM. IT TAKES ME TO A DIFFERENT PLACE THAT HAS JUST ME ENJOYING SOMETHING I LOVE. IT’S SPECIAL TO ME.” ON DONATING THE CD PLAYER TO THE MUSEUM, SCHULTZ EXPLAINED, “IF I COULD HAVE FIXED THIS, IT WOULD STILL BE IN MY SYSTEM…I JUST COULDN’T DO IT. YOU ASKED ME WHY IT’S IMPORTANT FOR ME TO DO SOMETHING WITH IT. I COULD LEAVE THIS [TO] SIT IN A BOX. IT’S IN A BOX AND IT HAS MEMORIES TO ME, BUT THIS IS AN ELECTRONIC PIECE OF ART AND IT’S A VERY, VERY WELL DESIGNED AND BEAUTIFUL SOUNDING PIECE OF EQUIPMENT… IT IS SUCH A UNIQUE THING AND SOMETHING I’VE PRIZED [TOO] MUCH THAT, TO ME, IT WOULD BE A TRAVESTY TO JUST SIT IN A BOX AND DO NOTHING, WHERE IT COULD POSSIBLY ONE DAY BE APPRECIATED BY OTHER PEOPLE FOR THE BEAUTY OF IT AND FOR THE DESIGN OF IT AND THE FACT THAT IT WAS REALLY AT THE TOP OF ITS CLASS AND THE REVIEWS THAT THEY HAVE STATED THAT THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST CD PLAYERS THAT HAS EVER BEEN MADE IN THE WORLD.” “THERE’S A PLACE I COULD GO DOWN AND RECYCLE [THE CD PLAYER, BUT IT’S THE] MOST DISRESPECTFUL THING I COULD DO…BECAUSE IT DESERVES BETTER THAN THAT FROM WHAT IT GAVE ME. SO I SAVE THEM. I FEEL EMBARRASSED THAT I’M EMOTIONAL ABOUT IT BUT TO ME – I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S A LOVE AFFAIR WITH SOMETHING, BUT IT’S NOT THAT FAR FROM IT. IT JUST GAVE ME SO MUCH INCREDIBLE JOY. [DESTROYING IT] WOULD BE THE MOST DISRESPECTFUL THING I COULD DO TO SOME INANIMATE OBJECT. I COULDN’T DO IT. THAT’S WHY IT SAT IN MY BASEMENT. I THOUGHT TO MYSELF, ‘THERE’S A BETTER HOME FOR IT THAN A CARDBOARD BOX’.” “I HAVE A CONNECTION HERE [TO THE GALT] AND I BELIEVE IN WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND WHAT YOU’RE TRYING TO ACHIEVE. IT MAKES ME FEEL PEACEFUL. I CAN SAY “GOODBYE.” FOR MORE INFORMATION INCLUDING THE FULL INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTION, PHOTOGRAPHS AND ADDITIONAL RECEIPTS DATED 1987, PLEASE SEE THE PERMANENT FILE P20190004000-GA.

"IN 1906 MY DAD [HAROLD ING SR.] LEFT HONG KONG FOR VANCOUVER, HE COULDN'T SPEAK ENGLISH... HE'S GOT TO BE A WAITER, A BUSBOY... AND HE LEARNED ALL THE WAY UP, IN THE MEANTIME PICKING UP ENGLISH... WENT TO WINNIPEG. THIS IS BEFORE ME. BY THEN HE KNEW THE WHOLE SYSTEM OF RESTAURANTING." MYRA AND HAROLD SR. MARRIED AND ADOPTED HAROLD JR. WHEN HE WAS BORN INTO A POOR FAMILY OF ELEVEN IN 1944, IN VANCOUVER. "ME AND MY TWIN SISTER WERE SOLD BECAUSE THERE WERE JUST TOO MANY. SO DAD, MY MOM PICKED ME AND DAD SAID YES THAT'S GOOD... I DON'T KNOW WHERE MY SISTER IS... THERE'S NO WAY OF FINDING OUT." THE ING FAMILY SETTLED IN LETHBRIDGE IN THE LATE 1940S, AND HAROLD SR. OWNS AND OPERATES THE NEW MOON CAFE AND TWO GROCERIES, WHICH ARE RUN BY THE FAMILY AND NEW CHINESE IMMIGRANTS THAT HAROLD SR. SPONSORED. "AT APPROXIMATELY FIVE YEARS OLD [MY FATHER] INTRODUCED ME TO THE NEW MOON CAFE, AND I WAS A BUSBOY AT THE AGE OF FIVE... IN 1951 HE SHOWED ME MY FIRST HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL... BECAUSE HE WAS THE OWNER... HE'D WAKE UP AT FIVE IN THE MORNING TO GO TO THE CAFE, OFF AND ON TO THE GROCERY STORE AND MIGHT BE DONE AT EIGHT AT NIGHT, SUPPER AND IMMEDIATELY TO CHINATOWN [FOR] GAMBLING, PUTTING DOWN MAH JONG." HAROLD JR. ATTENDED WESTMINISTER ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DURING THE DAY, AND CHINESE SCHOOL AT THE CHINESE NATIONAL LEAGUE IN THE EVENINGS - HIS FATHER WAS THE PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL LEAGUE, AND THE ORGANIZATION RAN THE SCHOOL, CULTURAL CELEBRATIONS, FILM SCREENINGS, AND BANQUETS, FUNDED BY MEMBERSHIP FEES. HAROLD'S YOUNGER BROTHER, CALVIN, "GOT SENT TO A BOARDING SCHOOL SOMEWHERE. HE WAS GIFTED, BUT HE HAD A BYPASS SURGERY, HE HAD SOMETHING WRONG WITH HIS HEART. HE COULDN'T HANDLE PUBLIC SCHOOL, SO THEY SENT HIM TO B.C." AFTER HIGH SCHOOL AND A BRIEF STINT IN CALGARY, HAROLD JR. RAN ING'S GROCERY FOR HIS FATHER, AND IN THE LATE 1960S AND EARLY 70S ALSO WORKED AS A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD AND A SALESMAN AT SEARS. BOTH HAROLD SR.
