    If Junior Brown can’t find outlets for his show, I hope he makes them available for online viewing. Fortunately for western swing fans here in Los Angeles the Quebe Sisters do like to play here as does the newly reunited Hot Club of Cowtown. Junior’s show sure sounds like a lot of fun.

    Sarah Buxton has been blogging a lot on her MySpace site lately after a few months of relative inactivity, so its great to see her energized and back in action. I really hope she doesn’t start trying to inhibit her irrepressible and zany personality in interviews as it is so contrary to her nature. As the ultimate “Anti-Carrie Underwood” personality wise Sarah has a duty to full to maintain balance in the universe…..

    Off Topic: Speaking of candor, in Amy Dalley’s latest MySpace blog she had this to say about finally getting out of her 5 year contract with the CURB label:
    “I am so excited to have so many new and great things happening all at once. It has been a long time since I have felt so hopeful and happy to look forward to what is to come. Escaping from the deep pit of Curb is such a GREAT thing!!!! I can’t tell you how good it is to not be trapped! Thanks for hanging in there! More soon! ~Amy~”
    I would like to see Bill Cody get Amy in the studio for an interview like he did with Sarah as Amy NEVER pulls any punches! (lol)

    I love the fact that Apple has passed Wal-Mart, but yet the record companies seem to fail to understand that it’s a market that isnt going away.

    I use Rhapsody rather than iTunes, but I can safely say I havent bought a CD since I got the service.

    Rick – I’ve heard a few not-so-good stories about Junior Brown, but I agree the show sounds like it’d be a good time. His music is top notch. And I’ll have to go check out Amy’s blog. I’ve subscribed to a few MySpace blogs but they’re usually not updated very often.

    Mike W. – I don’t think the record companies like Apple because Steve Jobs is trying exercise too much control.

    I have Rhapsody, too, but I’ve purchased way more CDs because of it. I like having the tangible product and actually owning something. I don’t have the Rhapsody mp3 player though and maybe I’d purchase less music if I did.

    Brody-I just use the player. It costs me $13 a month basically, but I have such a short drive I rarely listen to much music in my car and I noticed I listened to the majority of my music on my home PC, so I just decided I would go with it rather than CD’s or iTunes.

    I also love the fact I can listen to a lot of Austin bands I would never have been able to hear without ordering online. I live in Minnesota, so unless it’s an artist that is fairly “big” for Austin, such as Dale Watson, CCR, RRB, or someone along those lines, none of the stores carry their records.
