So Rick, from Homer's Records in Omaha (15 store chain), calls to order some Blue Suede News to sell in his store. I asked him how he heard of us and he said, "This guy just came up to the counter with a big stack of CDs he was buying by great but obscure artists. I asked him how he knew about these artists and he whipped a copy of Blue Suede News out of his back pocket and said 'because I read this'. I said 'gimme that for a minute', wrote down your number, got his money, then I called you."

General Deadlines: Spring, Feb. 15 (out mid March); Summer, May 15 (out in early June); Fall, Aug. 15 (out in early Sept.); Winter, Nov. 15. (out in early Dec.). We have only gotten 3 issues out each year the last couple of years, so Deadlines are often extended up to presstime - we need your support!
