Episode 4. Hugh Campbell

hrt logo

Jeff Majer has a conversation with Hugh Campbell the owner and operator of the John Marshall Barber Shop on Richmond’s Shockoe Hill.  The barber shop opened in 1929 on the same day that the stock market crashed that caused the great depression.  Campbell has been cutting hair t the shop for almost 50 years and has hosted many notables including Cab Calloway, George Bush, Richard Nixon, Elvis, Bruce Willis and many more. 

CORRECTION:  I say in this episode Shockoe Bottom yet the John Marshall is clearly on Shockoe Hill.  My bad.
