EXCERPT FROM About Us section: “I’m Dave Stack, the founder, and developer of MusicStack. MusicStack was started out of my college dorm room in the mid-1990’s while I was studying engineering at Ohio State University. Back then (before Google) finding anything on the internet was really hard to do so I decided to tackle the problem and MusicStack was born. Fast forward 20 years and MusicStack is still one of the best websites on the internet for tracking down hard to find and out-of-print vinyl records, LPs, and CDs.”
