Oral History Information
Russell Hill first met Ziggy Coyle in 1957 when the famed retailer hired Russ to help with the business side of the company. Ziggy and Russ made a wonderful team as Russ minded the numbers while Ziggy was out playing and promoting the store. The company grew to several locations throughout Ohio and Russ played a vital supportive role in its growth. Russ was also a key factor in Ziggy's involvement with NASMD (as a founder) and NAMM (serving as president of the Board) by running the company while Ziggy traveled.
