Had some REALLY great conversations with prospective publishers today (i.e. publishers considering adding their music to BMR). I'm enjoying connecting with publishers and talking about Band Stuff.

So far everyone I've talked to is very excited about this opportunity (for both publishers and directors).

If you know of other publishers that you'd like to hear on BMR be sure to vote (directors and band members) once you log-in. [Sorry, only directors and band members get to vote on those right now.]

Now that the station itself is running properly, we took a few days to get the structure of the web pages more functional.

Now you can easily select the area that you want to visit (based on your 'role') by just clicking on the main buttons.

In addition, when you 'connect' (or 'register') on the web site and choose a role, you will then be taken to the proper content page (based on your role) whenever you log in in the future. Just log-in and you're there!

Still a few integrations between the station and the web site to work out, but we're very close to going live.

Sorry for the down-time of the station over the past few days. It took a while to get the music rotation system working.

We had to basically re-write the entire system to program the music, station IDs and commercials to work as they should.

We've been running for a few days now without any major problems.

We should be ready to go live very soon.

Want to have some fun at a hot Marching Band rehearsal AND involved the local fire departement?

Mentor (OH) High School marching band (just outside Cleveland) shows you how.

We've got our first publisher signed-up and most of the music ready to go.

Who is that publisher?

Grand Mesa Music (www.GrandMesaMusic.com)

In just a few days we'll be making the station live for everyone to listen, but we really need to get a couple more publishers. Register now and vote for the publisher you'd like to hear next.

Watch your emails for all the news.
