A NOTE about the MMMM … When I started it many months ago I intended it as a way to share the new music in this blog that I debuted each week in the broadcast version of the show. I never intended the KEEP or DELETE feature to be a way for fans of a band to just come in and run up votes without also experiencing the other new cuts I share … which has happened more and more over time.
I can tell every time a band’s fans only vote for the band that drives them to the poll. A song may get 60+ KEEP votes while five other songs get a bare handful of votes.
I appreciate every vote that every song earns. I hope those who vote for one song at least check out others that are shared.
It’s never easy to announce the end of an era, especially when it entails the death of a friend or family member. Last Wednesday, as I was finishing up production on EP23 news flashed across my FB pg that Coupe Studios (Boulder) founder Scott Roche passed away from cancer.
I did not know Scott well. We knew each other professionally through the scene, and he always wanted me to know about some new record coming from Coupe. I actually got to record one song there, one my late wife wrote called Once Upon a Snowflake. It was the very first song I ever recorded.
The history of Coupe Studios will not end with Scott. He was wise enough to know that all life ends and if the studio was to continue then younger people had to do the work – so he set it up that way – that a couple of younger guys would move the vision forward.
Long live Coupe Studios (founded in a chicken coop) – RIP Scott Rouch.
