I'm (Almost) Famous!

Little did I know that sharing out all these old Christmas records would get me noticed by places as far flung as Southern California and, well, that's about it. I got interviewed recently for an article about Christmas music in The Press-Enterprise, and I don't think I came off too badly. You can read the article that ran in print here, and a sidebar that appeared on the web only here. I guess the whole thing was actually a sidebar to this article, but I will take what I can get. It's funny to me because I can remember typing all those things, but when they show up somewhere else, it feels a little like an out-of-body experience. The only beef I have with the article is that The Three Suns are an instrumental trio, not a vocal trio. But close enough. Anybody out there actually see this in the paper? I'd love to get a scan of the actual paper!

Oh, Ernie, I live in Southern California, and I've known about you for what, four years now? Of course, I don't have my own printing press, so I guess it's not the same.

Riverside isn't too far from here, but I don't know if I know anyone who lives there. I'll check around, though!

Congrats!

Congratulations on the publicity! You are already famous with those that know and love your blog! Thanks for all the great music year after year.

Ernie, now you may end getting so many hits, that once people discover how popular your posts are, that maybe you'll be the reason a lot of this music ends up being released on CD - and then you'll have to remove all your links! LOL!

One old medium covering another - I like it!

Congratualtions, Ernie, you deserve it.

Well, shoot. And I knew they were instrumental too. Just wasn't thinking!

I'll get it fixed in the Web version and get a correction in the print product on Monday.

Thanks for the interview!

Very cool and well-deserved attention! I was contacted for the article but they never returned my email. Glad to see that you and Hunter got featured.

Hey, Ernie, I managed to track down a copy for you. I should get it next week.
