This interview traces the history of the establishment of the student-operated record and magazine store on the UMN Morris campus. UMN Morris Assistant Provost Steve Granger (who was the administrative consultant with the student initiators of the store) discusses the store's roots in the idea arising from the National Student Movement of the 1960s that students should control student money. Emphasis in the interview is given to the financial difficulties that the store has experienced in the past as well as its connections with the Morris Campus Student Association. Granger also discusses the difficulties involved with the store's sale of smoking paraphernalia.
