Game Worn Radio: Live Interviews

While taking interviews the past week, I realized I have never interviewed any of the regulars on the show.  To fix that, we did interviews live.

Pete Gianakas, Dan Day, Tom Vore, Bobby Eagle and Jason Noyes gave us some insight on their collecting and their life to allow us to get to know them better.

Each person had a unique story on how they got started and what they collected but there were many commonalities on their favorite thing about collecting and its clear you can see the passion in each one by the way they enjoyed speaking about collecting.
