Friday, May 30, 2008 Contest

Ok first of all, the contest is about shameless self-promotion. We are trying to develop a mailing list. In order to do so, we came up with the idea of a contest. Beginning today through June 15th , anyone who goes to and subscribes to our updates via email will be eligible for the contest (see middle right side of blog). Please note, you must complete the registration as directed by “Feedburner”. On June 17th we will hold a drawing of all who registered. The winner will receive an autographed CD of Roger Smith’s (yes Roger did autograph this for us) new release “Sittin’ In” due out on June 6th. The winner will be posted on our blog, and we will contact that person via email for mailing instructions. That’s all there is to it. Thanks
