i wrote to bill mcgraw re his article on paradise valley.

here's his reply :-
Thanks for the note, and thanks for turning me on to your great web site. I would have listed it in the paper today if I had known about it. I actually know Lowell slightly as we have mutual friends, and I am familiar with your name and comments from Lowell�s web site. While I can�t turn around and do another story right away about historic preservation, I really want to do something on United Sound. I lived in the WSU neighborhood for 17 years, and I�m familiar both with the building and its history. It would probably help a story if I had more than one example of historic music/cultural places that are being allowed to die�Any other ideas? (There might be some on your site; I didn�t have time yet to check it all out.) Right away I think of the Grande Ballroom and Eastown�

i responded that motown studio B and tera shirma need protecting for starters.

watch this space.

Hi Everyone. Having just stumbled across this particular thread, some of you avid record collectors might be interested in the following. In the 70's I placed Want Ads in the `Chicago Reader` and the `Free Press`. The Reader ad, got me a package of free records from Clifford Binns, Pres. of `The Grandville Record Corp`, they wanted me to promote their stuff in the UK, possibly because I said I might be able to get it played on Radio 1 !!!!!!!(National radio)!!! The Free Press got me a couple of replies, inc. a reel to reel of some shows from WKNR. Why don't you give it a shot? Also the City Hall, International Commerce Dept. were very helpful. Keith.
