Hello. A friend, Chris Duncan, who apparently did some composer stuff here and had internet radio "station" for people here ?? - referred me to you guys. He said this

Create an account and post that you’re looking for original music along these lines. You might also mention that you’re a friend of Chris Duncan’s, the guy who ran the Composer Channel, and that he recommended you ask there. I ran an internet radio station featuring the composers there for a couple of years.
The GPO library can do very realistic sounding orchestral stuff (remember the song I sent you once, “When Goblins Frolic?” that was GPO).
These are good guys, and many of them will write for the love of doing it, and credits. You’ll get some good stuff.

I have a personal project ( documentary about a U.S. midwest town from early settlers to present day ) which will probably take a year to complete. It's not a commercial 'product' ( drama for broadcast etc ) but I hope to get it shown on a local PBS station, that sort of thing. So money is tight as you've probably heard a zillion times before.
I'm looking for music that is similar to something I heard recently and since I don't see a way to attach a small mp3 to this post I'll put the file on my home page website ( rodneybauer.com ) and call it "sample french music mp3 " Could you please listen to sample ( about 10 seconds long ) and help me find something like it ? It sounds to me like some French bistro or Brasserie type music, with accordian maybe, some kinda horn thing maybe ? I'm not a musician. But those instrument sounds play a big part in the 'feeling' of the music I'd like to get. I need maybe 2:30 min total that I can fade in and out of during various times in the documentary..documentary will be 30min total. I want to keep the documentary tone light hearted and fun, and this music sample seems to do that for me. If you have ideas or suggestions and so on, please let me know. I am not good at forum things so emailing me would be probably better...cause I have a hard time sometimes with following forum things.
