Hey guys. Just wanted to let you all know that we have a new SCOREcast podcast up. I have stepped in as the new co-host of the show with Deane Ogden. Lee Sanders has stepped down due to a hectic work schedule with "The Amazing Race" on CBS and I am very pleased for the opportunity to take over his co-hosting duties. We have a lot of cool things planned for the upcoming year.
(And for the Northern Sounds folks...perhaps we can get some periodic virtual instrument discussions in there.)
Feel free to check it out either via iTunes, or through the scorecastonline.com website. (Both linked below.)

Just think of these like bonus episodes of SCOREcast.
