    The Stupid Key Bit

    Thanks to everyone for the input. I believe I will pass the mic off to mom and let her take the fall. She wants it to be a suprise for the B&G. Like I said I haven't touched this bit since 1999, but Mom is insistant that this is exactly what she wants. As I recall from my earlier days...

    Anyone a member of Gigmasters?

    I hate resurrecting old threads, but I am looking to widen my bridal pipeline, and was wondering if those of you using this service still feel that it is a worthwhile investment, and flip floppidly, if some feel it is a less that favorable way to spend some dough. Thanks

    Promo Only Just Lost a Subscriber

    I'm guessing this is the same version that appeared on PC a few weeks back. A great song. Too bad about the lyrics, my crew has been instructed not to play it. I hold no ill will toward my provider, the choice not to play was mine and mine alone. I remember a long time ago, 1997, and...

    New Version of Waiting on A Woman

    Has anyone else laughed out loud at the Brad Paisly/ Andy Griffith version of Waitin' on a Woman from this week's Prime Cuts? It is such a nice idea, and then Matlock's vocals are lazily inserted during the last quarter of the song like the producer just gave up. The first 3/4 are done...

    Elvis "out-tro" song?

    That about that one that sounds kind of like the classic theme from family feud. You still hear it at revivals and such. It is a horn heavy piece and people love to clap along to it. I have been racking my brain for a decade trying to track that down. I think it played in his...

    Increasing number of I Pod Playlists

    The new music won't put me in to the red by any means, but from the stand point of wanting to make as much profit as possible while staying competitive in terms of price, value & service, I prefer avoid as many unexpected purchases as possible. It also puts a huge damper on our programming...
