News, Notes & Spins – FEB 1 2014

boninwf back stage nite 1 2012WOW … it’s Feb 5 and I am easily ten days behind schedule on everything.  That’s not good when you’re self employed LOL.  Hi guys … so, January was an explosive month – what with the weather, a family (I would say reunion, but we’ve never had a full family get-together before) Super Bowl party complete with new smart-tv … and grand-kids and grampa (new spelling courtesy of grand-kids) coming down with the “flu” (whatever that means today).  It was a pretty solid month musically speaking, as evidenced by the chart action below.   I don’t have much else to share really – I am accepting underwriting/advertising support, so if you or your business is statewide and would like to get some exposure around the state, hit me up.  Equally if you’re in an act that would like your record serviced to media and talent buyers around the state. That’s it … next month there should be plenty more news from around the state .. til then… welcome to the show 🙂
