One moment please. . .

I have received my replacement computer and it's up and running. The test transfers I've made are satisfactory according to my standards. I'll do some new transfers this week with the view to producing a new program for this coming Friday, June 5. I hope that happens.

In other news

I'm still waiting for the delivery a new computer. Live365 declared that they would no longer "support" the operating system I've been using, so I was forced to buy a new machine. With any luck the problems I've been having with sound quality will diminish with the installation of a new PC.

I would have been back in business this week, but the machine I received last Friday was damaged and I sent it back immediately. I have had no word on a replacement as of today. To say that this has inconvenienced me is an understatement. It is unspeakably frustrating.

Jean Goldkette Lives Again!

Bix, Spiegle, and Jean Goldkette fans take note: Josh Duffee & His Graystone Monarchs are planning a concert in Chambersburg, PA (the hometown of Chauncey Morehouse) for July 22, 2015. Josh is a leading authority on Jean Goldkette and Chauncey Morehouse, and he will have a gaggle of amazing musicians (including cornet phenoms Andy Schumm and Mike Davis) with him. If you can possibly make it, this is a concert not to be missed. Josh is currently fundraising to make this FREE admission show happen--please contribute if you can.

More of the same

I'm feeling marginally better, but I'm taking this week off also. I'm frustrated with the quality of audio I've been getting lately with my digital transfers. I went so far as to purchase a new USB preamp/interface but I'm still getting momentary glitches. They may not be egregious to others but it's my job to notice them first before they become a general annoyance. If I am compelled to replace my computer yet again I suppose I'll have to do it. I'm considering putting the show on hiatus until I can produce a program that I am happy to publish under my own name.
