Brass City Records in Waterbury, a local institution, needs help.

Walt Quadrato, the owner of Brass City Records on Willow Street, passed away in May. His family has been struggling to preserve his legacy and they need your help one last time. The family has set up a GOFUNDME page. They've been going through over 30 years of Walt's life's work, and it's taken longer than expected to get everything in order. The family is asking for help in paying one last month's rent on the store.

I grew up going to Brass City Records, and if you did also, please offer a contribution. I recently lost my mother, and I am going through much the same process as Walt's family. I'm sure many of you have been in a similar situation. Help out if you can, CLICK HERE for the GOFUNDME page
