Selfless Promotion Part II

29 Oct

From the windows in our office on the 9th floor, I can see blue sky and those clouds that make their appearance on TV every Sunday night at 8PM.  In essence, a beautiful day.

Our artists are kind enough to let us know when they have public appearances and so, we’d like to pass that information on to you, the public, in hopes you might consider spending some time with them and witnessing how truly talented they are…
