Re: “The ballad of Fred and Yoko

Freds Prism store at 342 King Street in Charleston, was a safe haven for me and many, many other teenagers back in the early 1980s. He never came on to me or any of my friends who hung out there, at least not that I am aware of. What he did was make us - punks and miscreants and nerds and outsiders - collectively feel accepted and normal whenever we were there, and it didnt matter if we bought a record or not (although many of us were indeed regular customers) - he just like having freeminded people around. Almost 40 years later, some of my best friends I currently have are folks who I met at the Prism, who I otherwise may have never met.
He did in fact have an ex-girlfriend working there for a good long time (Fred was actually bisexual, at least at one point), who wound up taking my virginity; I couldnt resist her wild hair and pierced nose! Anyway, thank you for a well thought out and kind tribute to Fred, May he be resting in peace somewhere.
