4th of July ribbonOn an upcoming episode of "Now Hear This Entertainment" that I recorded two days ago I said I'd do a blog on this, and it turns out that today is actually perfect timing.  Tomorrow is Independence Day here in the United States.  It wi

Mai TatroApproximately ten days ago I had the opportunity to do an interview on-location for “Now Hear This Entertainment.”  That episode will come out the day after tomorrow (on Wednesday, June 28th).  It will be titled NHTE 177 Mai Tatro but should be titled, “Youth’s hard work paying off.”

Where are all those people you said would show up?One night last week I was out visiting venues.  One band in particular that I book is a good fit for the sites that I chose to go to that evening, which in itself is maybe a lesson or a blog for another time (not trying to get booked at a place that you’re not a fit for).
