Also showing on cable TV…

Posted on

Interestingly enough, the night I got back from vacation, just for the heck of it, I decided to turn on the TV to the Home and Garden channel (HGTV) to see if I might happen across the Pike Family Nurseries commercial I told you about earlier. Well, no joke, two commercials later as I watched, […]

‘Sing It Out’ forwarded to producer

I subscribe to a service called “Taxi” where independent musicians can submit songs to listings from the music industry. People in the industry listen to and critique your songs, then decide whether it’s good enough to forward to the producer or publisher who requested it. Well, I recently had the song “Sing It Out” forwarded […]
