(Back then they didn't have TV) He was 17, he suggested they open a record department and he should run it. That was the beginning of 'Sam the Record Man' ... a chain of 138 record stores stretching across Canada.

This year (1990) Sam will sell over 80 million dollars worth of records. The early days were dam tough. Ask Sam what he'd do differently and he'll tell you with that perennial twinkle in his eyes ...

"Have a rich father or else have a big ego."

Sam readily admits to having a big ego. Life size full color cut outs of a smiling Sam greet customers in every outlet. The Canadian Recording Industry have much to thank Sam for. The door to his cluttered upstairs office is always open to Canadian talent. He's received numerous industry awards including the prestigious 'Walt Grealis Juno Award' for his support and promotion of Canadian music and Canadian artists. Their way of saying thanks to a man whose belief and support of Canadian talent has helped launch the career of many, including Anne Murray.

Sam Sniderman. . . another Canadian Achiever.
