Milton Friedman was known as “Little Mickey” because he was one of the little people. However, he never let his size slow him down. He was a professional photographer, owned bars in Dayton, and promoted professional wrestling, professional basketball, and music shows. His bluegrass connection came when he purchased the Friendly Inn on West Third Street, renamed it Little Mickey’s, and continued to feature bluegrass music. Friedman concluded his career as proprietor of several adult bookstores near downtown Dayton.
