Oral History Information
Company NameWashington Music Center
Alan Levin is the eldest child of Chuck and Margie Levin, the founders of Washington Music Center, which began as Chuck Levin’s Music Center. Alan was a child when the 1968 Washington DC riots destroyed the music store. The event gave way to one of the industry’s best examples of resilience and dedication and remains a source of inspiration to this day as the Levin’s worked with their suppliers and wholesalers to continue to employ their staff and service their customer, a key element of their focus to this very day.
