Brian Poust’s interest in records caused him to go hungry. “Around age 14, I began pocketing my lunch money for school and going down to Quicksilver Records in Greenville, NC, to blow it on cool looking used records” he said. At first he said he picked records based on song titles or cover art, “rather than any real knowledge of music.” Still, he said, it led to his introduction to punk, ska, jazz and soul music.
He learned more from listening to East Carolina University’s WZMB and in college he worked at WUSC at the University of South Carolina. “By the time I moved to Atlanta I was hooked on Soul 45s and began researching them further,” he said, “which led to creating GeorgiaSoul, a repository for documenting the Soul music history of Georgia.”
Brian’s bringing soul, funk, jazz, gospel and rock LPs and 45s, with “various oddball records thrown into the mix,” he said.
