June 24, 2010

Recently I went to hear a friend’s band (Episodes) play at a local bar. Their music is basically classic rock, indie and some folk rock. The music was great and everyone enjoyed it. The majority of the people in the room were friends of the band. After about an hour, the “cover band” Recovery...

A Few Kudos to Industry Supporters

June 10, 2010

I've probably forgotten somebody. There are a lot of people out there, and a lot of large and small companies that help us do what we do. They donate door prizes at our meetings and conventions. They volunteer time and community service. They support the Foundation and sponsor our events. It's not enough, but...

Learn From The Masters
