Oral History Information
Ian Goldrich grew up with a father who knew the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix, making him one of the coolest kids in school. As the owner of Manny's Music, his dad, Henry, knew everyone in music and everything about the gear, a job Ian could not wait to be a part of. Ian worked with his brother, Judd, in the store his grandfather, Manny, opened in New York City that was run by his dad before he and his brother took over. The store famously sat on the corner of music row on 48th Street and became a pillar in the industry. In 2009, the store was sold to Sam Ash, at which time Ian continued to work for Manny's until it was closed and then moved over to manage the Sam Ash store 34th Street in New York.
