Request for BBS Newsletter Materials

ATTENTION WRITERS, ARTISTS, PHOTOGRAPHERS, MUSICIANS & ALL INTERESTED PARTIES.

The Blues Society is planning to print a newsletter, like the ones we did in the early years of the club. We need articles, drawings, photos, and anything else that would help make it interesting. Musicians might want to send a short history and bio of their group. CD reviews, historical perspectives, anything that pertains to blues and especially to Boise blues will be considered. Send your items or questions to norman@radiothrills.com and watch for the new edition of News of the Blues, coming sometime this Fall or Winter. We want to sell a few print ads to pay for this periodical and can use some help in that department, too.
