A Conversation With Doug Norwine, Director of Music and Entertainment Memorabilia at Heritage Auction Galleries
Editor: Tell me about yourself and about your background in music and entertainment memorabilia.
I realize now that my whole life has been training for this job at Heritage. My job is wonderful and rewarding; every day is like Christmas. I get to see the finest memorabilia in the world.
What else do you collect?
What is hot in music and entertainment right now?
