Rowan and Bruce spread rumors and play only CD's we got this week, because the mixer hook-up for the lap-top with its 3500 song library is broken! That's why we need your donations! Glad we got a lot of new stuff to play. Rowan got a free ticket to They Might Be Giants and took notes.

By the way, Petosa Accordions denies rumours of their demise. (Our panicked rumor-mongering comments here not-withstanding). The other-instruments and sound-production part of their shop seems to be closing so they can specialize on the growing accordion renaissance.)

"A rumour that has recently been circulating that Petosa Accordions, based in Seattle, Washington, is closing down, but this is most certainly not the case. However, Petosa Music, the musical accessories side of the business is closing. Henceforward, Petosa will concentrate on acoustic accordions.

"Petosa Accordions was founded in 1922 by Carl Petosa. Son Joe Petosa inherited the family business, which is now run by Joe Petosa Junior."

They have some really cool small free-bass accordions online now. Wish we had such a shop in Vancouver.


Another belated plug for Toronto Accordion Circle!
This Sunday Sept. 30, 3-5 pm (starting as I post this), Tinto Coffee House. Tell us how it goes!
