207. Damn The Man Save The Music Part 2

With Seal ready to sign albums for fans, $2000 missing from the books, and one employee out of her mind on E Revolution records is in a heap of trouble. If our sibling employees are able to see each other’s merits and work together there is still a chance to save the store. Or I guess everyone could double down on a lack of empathy and let the world burn. EITHER IS GOOD.

206. Damn The Man Save The Music Part 1

Revolution Records has been circling the drain for almost a decade. It’s the weakest link in a chain of family businesses in western Chicago. Under new management by the youngest daughter, there is a small glimmer of hope. She has managed to keep the somewhat incompetent employees focused enough for the store to limp towards an event sure to bring in new customers. Seal will be signing his latest album Seal 3 this afternoon. If it goes well, everything might be okay.
