William Blackshear

Bill's affiliation with the roots of the "NR&BMS" comes during a long term association with the music of our legends, known and not so well known..

A lover of the music since childhood , it's imprint seared in his mind from listening to the sounds in the homes, parties, cars, parks, etc.  from youth to adult life.

Years of  record acquisition has resulted in his becoming one of the top 70s Soul music collectors in the world.

With his involvement in music, it's only natural that "music karma" led Bill to association with the other founding Officers of "The NR&BMS", once strangers, now great friends.

A man who wears many hats, his music affiliation also led to his opening a "Collectibles" record store as a hobby in 1994, Timeless Tracks Records, 316 Amsterdam Ave., Roselle, NJ 07052.

A former college basketball player, Bill is Trustee Emeritus of the West Orange Soccer Club, retired basketball coach with the pre-high school boys basketball Traveling Club, and manages his children's pre-college athletic careers.  His oldest child is a 2 sport Div. 1 athlete.

Professionally, Bill is a Sr. Relocation Manager.

Bill brings a wealth of experience from years in management and business ownership, the desire, commitment and love of the music and the artists who created it, to help lead the "NR&BMS" through it's growth and future legacy..
