Mike Ippoliti is an interesting guy. He and his wife stopped over the shedbar to talk about the National Barber Museum and Hall of Fame, but immediately started to tell us stories of his time in radio and local music production. He then told us how he stumbled into the role of curator of the museum, and some of the challenges along the way. They are not currently open, as they are in the process of moving, but looking to open the doors to the public again in the new year. And, Robert shows his softer side, lamenting about a barber from his past.
