JOHN NELSON, 51, is an institution in Charleston, W.Va. He is manager and music buyer for Budget Tapes and Records, the go-to place for new music, concert tickets and gifts and goodies for three decades in the Kanawha City section of West Virginia’s capital city. John’s been a new music guru to several generations of music addicts. I followed him around with a hand-held recorder and my trusty Canon PowerShot A630. Read, view and hear the results below:
