These rankings are meaningless. In fact, the only thing I get from scanning this list is how pretentious that school in Columbus is.

And I need no list to tell me that.

That list in the original post is bullcrap. Christian colleges ranked #2 and #3?

This is more realistic:

Christians don't drink and dance and have fun? It's from the Wall Street Journal.

Do you know why Church of the Nazarene members don't make love standing up?

They're afraid somebody might think they're dancing. (rimshot here)

Is it still a Wendy's there?

Did you ever know John and Jeff that lived above Swanky's?

Jeff worked at the Waterbed store on the other side of the street.

Nobody else knew John and Jeff that lived upstairs? They were not exactly a good influence on the student body members who hung out with them. I always wondered if they partied so much because they survived their time in Viet Nam and figured they were due to have some (too much) fun.

Just curious about other's opinions. I ate lunch a few months go at Oryza Asian Grill. I was not impressed, and I usually like Asian cooking -- particularly Chinese and Thai. However, in the case of Oryza Grill, Wendy's would have been an upgrade. Perhaps I just didn't order the right thing, but the guy I was with didn't like his order all that much either. He was 50ish history professor.

What about Vere Smith Audio and/or Cunningham's?

Am I the only one who got a stereo at one of those places?

Didn't buy a stereo at Vere Smith, but my father bought me a Sony cassette recorder/player from there. It was a state-of-the-art portable cassette machine at that time. It had a big plastic carrying case and contained two big external speakers.

Also, when I was in high school, a friend and I used to scavenge the junk piles of old radio and TV chassis in behind the store (that was before it moved to the Union Street location) to take components to build various electronic projects.

I knew Paul Cunningham and bought electronic gear there from TVs to radios. He was a very nice man. He died of a massive heart attack at a fairly young age. His wife was a Russian immigrant.

I remember Vere Smith but for some strange reason I donít recall ever having been there. Especially with my long time interest in music, stereo systems, etc.

Speaking of 1969, my father bought a used Fender Telecaster at Cunninghamís for me. This was at their old location on the west side of Richland. I remember the exact date because it was the day Bo upset Woody, November 22. The game was playing on the radio in the background and I remember late in the game thinking Ohio State would still win because they were so good (yes, I was on the dark side at one time). I still have that guitar. George Gruhn in Nashville said to me back in 2018 itís worth keeping. :)

I will also mention that there is a story about Joe Walsh acquiring two Gibson Les Pauls in 1969, one he ended up giving (Selling) to Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin. The story is that Joe said that one of the guitars came from ďa family owned music store in Athens OhioĒ. Iím thinking this may have been Cunninghamís and, if so, my guitar may have shared some air space with one of the instruments. I can vouch, however, that when I pick up my guitar there isnít any advantage to me that I can notice. ;)

The Richland location was Cunningham's new, and as best I remember, their final location. It's where Peddler and Packer is now located. Their old location was on Stimson Avenue.

Perhaps the Richland Avenue location I am referring to was a temporary location for some reason. Itís the building that I believe was a fish market of some sort in the late 80s/early 90s. Not sure what it is now.

Hmm . . . I asked both my son and wife and neither had a memory of such a temporary location. I'm not saying that this might not have happened, but I can't confirm it. The best we can remember is that Paul Cunningham built that building on Richland and then moved there from his Stimson Avenue location. It's possible there was a temporary location for a few months before the move. Paul died unexpectedly from a massive heart attack in what we remember as the early 1990s. His wife may have kept the store open for awhile after that, but I can't remember how long that was.

Edit: Just re-read your post. You are saying 1969. I didn't come back to Athens until 1978, and didn't meet Paul until that year, so I actually don't know where he was between 1968 and '78. All I know is that he was on Stimson in 1978, and that he later moved to the Richland location that is now Peddler & Packer.

My friends and I used to go to Cunninghamís on Stimson in the early 70ís just to drool over the high-end stereo equipment that none of us could afford. I still measure my home entertainment set-up against those visits.

Did George use his favorite phrase "intrinsic value" when evaluating the guitar? People in Nashville always made fun of how often he said it. An old friend of mine worked in his store.
