David Giffels with the 4-track recorder he purchased from a teenage Patrick Carney
The Patrick & David show is a wowser!

Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, the kid from Firestone High who has been high on music nearly his entire life, and David Giffels, whose motto is, If I build it, I’ll write a book about it, wowed them at the Akron Roundtable’s 40th anniversary celebration, where everyone there thinned out their wallets significantly to get into the affair.

Some of the highlights:

Giffels, a former BJ columnist, purchased a 4-track recorder from a teenaged Carney, who is a son of retired BJ reporter and sometimes radio talk show sub Jim Carney and stepson of BJ reporter Katie Byard.

Giffels loves Devo, and wrote a book about the Akron music group. Carney lived in a Highland Square apartment once occupied by Devo.

Carney said that mein papa enlisted him to appear at the Roundtable anniversary shindig.
