Hire them!

This episode's cover: Sadly the boys bailed before I could get a picture of their sweet dog for our cover-thing. So, the cover for tonight is the Skull Accordion Strap hand-jiggered from a guitar-one when the old boring accordion one broke. It's the rebirth of accordion strap fashion. A fellow at our Vancouver Squeezebox Circle did it (didn't catch his name?) I gotta get me some. We should market them as fundraisers.

Holllly! We could make "One Less Guitar" accordion straps! That'd be sooo cool! Oh, man, this has to happen.

Thanks Komatich for the chance to have this idea!
