We know him as “One Dollar Albums“, but it’s time to meet the man behind the username: Jordan!
Back in 2011, Jordan signed up for Murfie, and since then he’s sent over 1200 discs from good ol’ Montana to Madison. He successfully markets his shop via facebook and twitter.
Murfie: How did you originally learn about Murfie?
Jordan: I heard the piece about Murfie on NPR’s “Weekend Edition”.
M: When did you purchase your first CD? What was it?
J: It was Another Level by Blackstreet. No diggity.
M: How many CDs do you own (or did you own at your peak)?
J: I’ve sold a few hundred, and I invested the funds in additional inventory for my store. The most I’ve had at once is about 850.
M: How tall are you?
M: Tell us about your musical tastes.
J: Post-punk/Manchester bands like The Smiths and Joy Division are my favorites, but I also love Riot Grrl bands of the 90’s, hip hop, and I have a lifelong obsession with David Bowie. I also love anything that’s fun. I love to flip on the radio and hear a jam by Rihanna or Ke$ha.
M: What can folks expect to find in your store (if different than the above)?
J: My goal with the store is to have good albums by artists you’ve heard of all priced at $1. It has a little bit of everything, from Ricky Martin to The Doors to Black Sabbath to Garth Brooks.
M: If you could meet any musician or band in person, who would it be and why?
J: I would meet Morrissey to see if he’s really like that in person. He can’t be, can he?
M: What is your favorite album at the moment?
J: So by Peter Gabriel.
M: What do you plan to do with the millions of dollars you’re making from your Murfie shop?
J: Ha! I’m not making millions, but I am coming out ahead. I got involved because I thought it was a neat project, and I liked the recycling element. I haven’t put a lot of thought into what I will do with the money. Maybe I will get a Sonos player.
M: Which Beatle was your favorite?
J: Billy Shears.
