Val was no pretender

Opinion: Letters To The Editor

My Val Camilletti tribute story, from back in the LP days: I had heard a song on the radio I really liked and wanted to find the album. I walked into Val's and said, "I heard this song I like. It has something to do with 'Ohio.'" She kind of rolled her eyes at me, walked over to the "P" section and pulled out the Pretenders' Learning to Crawl album on which was "My City Was Gone." Slightly shaking her head with a smile, she handed it to me, turned and walked away.

Thank you, Val.
