      NOTE:

       

      Materials in brackets are my additions. Items are listed more or less in reverse chronological order within each section. All links are working at the time I send this email. Many of the articles listed are printed in other Alabama newspapers; in general, I do not attempt to list all appearances of an article. Some dates given are those when the item was posted to the newspaper or magazine web site. Some items are listed without links because I could not find online versions.

       

      Feel free to forward this email as desired....

       

      WARNING: Many articles on newspaper and magazine web sites are accompanied by nasty, anonymous comments about individuals and subjects in the posted articles. Some articles in these listings will unfortunately include such commentary.

       

       

      AND NOW THE NEWS...

        Sunday, June 20, 2-3pm, Alabama Public Television
        "Songs Inside The Box is a documentary film that takes viewers to the world's largest concert of cigar box guitar music and provides a unique glimpse into a popular hobby and growing movement of self expression participants call the cigar box guitar revolution. You'll meet the King of the Cigar Box Guitar and some of his troops from the front lines of the revolution. They've made musical instruments from things most people throw away and they've written songs inspired by the twanging sounds their treasured boxes produce. Along the way, they've discovered secrets hidden deep inside themselves that they couldn't have tapped into otherwise."
