Joining The Family Potato Business Lets Father And Son Finally Connect

KPLU's Nick Morrison and his father, 1981.

KPLU's Nick Morrison has had many jobs, ranging from disc jockey to adult theater manager to music publication entrepreneur. So it might come as no surprise that he also worked in the family business.

Nick's father was in the potato business in Eastern Washington, and after some time in San Francisco, Nick returned home in need of some work.

He and his father had never really taken the time to get to know each other, and Nick, arriving back home with a pony tail and bell bottoms, was probably not going to improve things.

But after Nick created a way to increase productivity in the workplace, his father not only opened his mind to Nick, but to hippies everywhere. It turned out to be the beginning of a beautiful father-son relationship.
