Bulletin Board January 27 2001
Homefront. Beginning this week, you'll notice the space on this page underneath the "Earshot" headline now contains a quote of the week. Each issue we'll print some fascinating thing said relating to local music. To collect these quotes, we'll occasionally solicit responses to a question sent directly to local musicians through an e-mail mailing list. If you are actively involved in local music and would like to be included, send your e-mail address to email@example.com; subject line "email for quotes."
