    Why are you reporting?

    It’s been an interesting week. Monday, I got a call from a man representing a record label I had never heard of. He went on to tell me that he was working a single from an artist I vaguely remember from last year’s charts, and like all others that have called here for 20 years, […]

    Whitney, Almost Had It All

    Ironically, one of the songs I liked most recorded by Whtiney Houston was “Didn’t we almost have it all”. More than a great majority of us, and in the top echelon of entertainers, Whitney Houston did have it all. Beauty. An angelic voice, pitch perfect. Passion.

    Yes, You Can

    Not The Best Of Seasons
