Hello, Victor Litz Music! My wife stumbled across your site today and, knowing that I grew up not far from Gaithersburg, asked me if I had ever heard of your store. I had an instant wave of nostalgia: I grew up in Clarksburg in the 1970s, when downtown Clarksburg was just a general store, a post office, a gas station and a bank. I was a teenager in 1975 when I first went into Victor Litz, when the shop was located in the old house on 355, and rented a Harmony 5-string banjo. Every three months or so I would come to the store to buy strings, and I would always enjoy speaking, however briefly, with the cool people (musicians!) who worked in the shop. And the smell and the sound of the old house is something I remember even today. I remain a lifelong musician (banjo, accordion, piano, dobro), due in no small part to Victor Litz. I have not been back to Clarksburg or Gaithersburg in decades, but I am glad to know that you're still around! Very sincerely, Geoff Freed
