Well, I just found out last week that Charlie, Deirdre's co - host on the Composer Channel shows, is moving to the New England area. Above and beyond the fact that he's a close friend, we're going to miss the humor and good nature that he always injects into the shows.
However, there's always a silver lining to things. In this particular case, Deirdre and I have talked things over, and we'll be running some local ads for folks to join the team. We want to keep it local and record in the studio here for a number of reasons, and I'm sure as big as Atlanta is, we're going to find a lot of new talent. I'll be bringing in as many good, fun, nice people as we find, and that's going to breath new life into our shows and give us a lot more variety of personality and ideas. All of which, of course, will spotlight your music that much more.
So, as bummed as I am that Charlie will be hundreds of miles away, the end result will be taking the Composer Channel to a new level in terms of our hosted shows. Also, with more people available, we should be able to schedule sessions more frequently as well.
So, as they say in the biz, stay tuned!
