Barbara & Terri Manning - KFZ, Marburg, Germany, May 23, 1992
Lovely show from way back when over on the Archive, including some typically well-chosen covers of Fairport Convention and Gram Parsons. I’ve probably said it before, but Barbara’s records definitely deserve rediscovery…

Hello There!

My name is Martin Frankel. I am 73-year-old 3rd generation retailer from Brooklyn, NY.  My grandfather A. Frankel opened our family business Frankel’s in 1890 which I proudly own and operate today.  Not to riddle you with family history, but I was also born at the store.  The only time I ever spent away from was while I was serving with the US Army.  

I have proudly sold Red Wing boots long before many of you were born.    I even have painted a billboard featuring a pair of Red Wing boots and there logo on the side the building facing the Brooklyn/Queens Expressway. I have been a believer in Red Wing brand.  
It kills me to have to write this letter as I always thought I was part of the Red Wing team.  My employees have joked in the past and said that you cut me I would bleed Red Wing.   I felt like I had the wind knocked out of me when I recent received a email notifying me that due to recent distribution realignments your account with Red Wing brands of America will be closed effective August 1, 2014.     
After many years I have been up a loyal customer.  I am left speechless now when my customers ask me why I don’t carry Red Wing products anymore.  A majority of my customs are union members that were devastated to find out that they were no longer able to get their Red Wing boots from me after many years of repeat visits.  Almost every iron worker in the NYC area knows my store as the place to buy Red Wing boots.    I know it to days age of big brands and big names mine doesn’t really hold up to the big boys.  I am proud small business owner selling my last Red Wing Boots I have in my store on eBay.
