Once upon a time, long ago there were no phony Pitch “street teams,” “Like Me” ad sellouts, just long hours, very small paychecks and the will to party.
That was then…
And former Pitch editor Jim Hense remembers it well.
A little known fact is Hense was the first full-time editor of the Pitch in the mid-late 1980s when it disembarked from Pennylane Records in Westport and set sail for the wide world of alternative journalism.
Full disclosure: I hired him.
Hense’s wildest memory from those bygone daze?
