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.
