Based in Austin, TX, Dave Haffner aka DJ Coolhands runs the excellent Friends of Sound Record Store, which is easily one of the best stores I've ever visited (and believe me there have been a few). he is also the head honcho at Magnetic Recordings. He also works with various labels to get old soul and funk records reissued. Currently you should check for his KC Express and Shirley Nanette 45s out through Truth And Soul, as well as his Antonio Castro 45 out on Jazzman.
