San Diego

Had a fantastic trip to the US to attend NAB in Las Vegas. We met many of our publishers from all
over the world...Great to catch up and renew some old friendships.

We then went to San Diego and Los Angeles for more music meetings...Here's the view from our room overlooking San Diego bay. It's a lovely city which has a lush park (Balboa) with plentiful museums and attractions and beautiful beaches within a mile or two of each other.


Highland Emergency is showing weekdays on 5* at 2pm. Two back to back episodes which are repeated on 5*+1 an hour later.

Charlie Kunz and Vegas...

I've been very quiet on here and Facebook etc... recently as I've been very busy. Apart from musical work (editing and polishing a piano album, writing two albums for Artful, an EP for Chillville, tracks for Gold Leaf and two TV shows), there have been a few things in 'real' life that have taken up a lot of time.

The Charlie Kunz clip above is a tribute to my Father-In-Law who died in February after a long illness. He introduced me to Charlie Kunz's music many years ago and I've loved his playing ever since. Charlie was so popular during World War 2, that it was suspected that the order of the songs he played on the radio during his medleys were some sort of secret code for spies operating behind enemy lines!!!

We are going to NAB in Las Vegas at the beginning of April. This is an audio/visual show/convention and we will be meeting many of our sub-publishers who promote my music overseas. Then it's on to Los Angeles via San Diego for more music meetings.
