    What a Great & Fun read this is! This was placed on the radio side because of the remembrance of
    K-Van, The Mono Maniacs.

    Fantastic article about a key music guy in Portland.
    I really did smile when I read the whole article and KVAN was the only radio station mentioned.

    I still love and admire Music Millennium. Yet I should mention that Record Exchange in Boise is just as deserving of our accolades. Their focus and MM's are compatible!

    I went into Milennium with my mother this week to redeem a gift certificate given to me by a friend. Knowlegable, friendly, cool people work there. If you can't find it in their well-organised racks, they'll beat the bushes to find it. One of Portland's true treasures! Even my mother couldn't resist getting a couple new CD's for her collection while we were there, and that doesn't happen often! Take a bow, Milennium guys & gals! You desereve it! Cheers! :wink: Best, M. 8)

    This is a landmark and a store loved by all music fans in Stumptown. I admire Terry for hanging in there and keeping the record store alive. He does it for the love of the music, without a question. I ran into a friend downtown and he mentioned that it was his Saturday for Father & Daughter/Son day. He asked me for an idea,,,I told him take the kids to Music Millennium and let them experience a RECORD STORE. He thought that was a great idea. He took the kids to lunch on Belmont and then went to M.M. He reported they had a great time and had to pull the kids out. PLEASE encourage friends to do the same. What kind of world will this be ordering books and music on a computer and not having the experience of the store? It will be a crime if this goes away. Long live Music Millennium on East Burnside and shame on that evil asshole who forced Terry out of 23rd. Terry was there long before it became cool to shop that strip. It has been a empty lonely hole since he left. F-HIM and the greed that went with it.

    Terry is a great guy, and whenever I see him out and about he acts like we are old friends! And, he drives, (drove?) the same beater car as I did for years; The "what the hell color is that??" Chrysler. Gotta love that!

    Music Millennium used to sponsor the KINK Album Preview every evening at 10 PM.

    I like the fact he still takes out large adverts in the local press
