Thank you so much for featuring 'The Satie Project' on your March 31st program – New Sounds. I have been a fan of your program for years and was thrilled to hear that you included my latest CD on your show. I’d like to invite you and your listeners to our celebration of Erik Satie’s 144th birthday on May 17th which is also my CD release performance, here at Nightingales, NYC. (213 Second Avenue (NW Corner of 13th St. & 2nd Ave.)

I will keep you informed with the progress of my next CD 'The Satie Project' Vol. 2, which is already in production.

Thanks again for your support and for sharing this music with your listeners.

Sincerely,

Dan Willis

You played a crazy electronic sounding piece the other night called General admission By a group called Spectac I think, I can;t find it anywhere. I want to have this piece of music. Where Can I get the CD ?

John:

That you have devoted so much time to actually "debating" the value of banjo music is surely one great leap backwards for the serious musicians who work for decades towards elevating their craft. No surprise that Joe Queenan takes an uneducated narrowminded position; lambasting everything in his path is how he makes a living. Hey, if your going to have a critic, at least have one that knows and understands the genre. Queenan obviously doesn't. His postions were humiliating, actually.

I'm sorry, but your banjo debate reveals a patronizing snobbishness on your part. Would you debate the value of let's say, the trumpet and have Winton Marsalis call in to defend his work? I don't think so. He's a cool guy and we wouldn't want to suggest that after ten minutes of trumpet music, we've all had enough of that too.

Bela Fleck, with 11 Grammy awards and 27 nominations, has won in more Grammy award categories than any artist in history. What more does it take to show that for millions of listeners worldwidethe banjo is not an irritating novelty?
