George Phillips, Full Interview
Collection: This recording is part of the 30th Ave - A Year in the Life of a Street Records at the Archives at Queens Library: George Phillips
Description: George Phillips is Greek American. He worked as a research scientist for NASA for eight years before taking over Astoria Music on 30th Avenue and is also a professional bouzouki player. The store, which was founded in 1922, specializes in bouzoukis but also sells many other instruments. He laments changes to the music scene, in which there are fewer and fewer memorable songs written and fewer venues that feature live music.
