83--NEWS--Event Proposal DEADLINE Friday, July 18!!

Hi Folks,
Just a reminder that the first deadline is one week away.
If you are planning on producing/engineering a festival event which is going to run 20 minutes or longer, you need to let us know by this coming Friday, July 18.
We are planning on putting out a printed flyer with a schedule of at least the larger events, so we need to have your material in order to get the schedule organized.
You will find the event proposal form on email #35.
If you don't have a copy of that email, go to my blogsite on or email this address and I will send you another.
You do not have to have the event finished by this Friday or even know the exact time-length, but we do need a close approximation of the running time and some description of what you are going to do.

81--NEWS/CALL--Attention Musicians/Audio Artists & thanks to Free Geek & Glen

Hi folks,

I have decided on a procedure to make the vocal recordings which are
now being recorded available for musicians & audio artists to hear
and perhaps add-to/work-on.

The yahoo site has a limit of nothing larger than 10MB can be attached.  This means nothing longer than about 10 minutes.

Glen Owen turned my name into Free Geek and this week Free Geek gave
me  one of their "grant-boxes" which is a newer-larger-faster
computer with enough memory for me to do audio work at home.

Thank you Glen and thank you Free Geek.  Very much!!!
