      Tom:

      I am guilty of being a 61 year Society member but without objection to good

      ideas to increase visibility of our great singing.



      I do object to "cheap shots" impugning older members of the "Barbershop

      crowd" as somehow too out of touch to favor a suggested use of a "hip" outlet

      to promote our hobby.



      We have some differences of opinion within the Society that deserve

      continuing discussions. Let's avoid sweeping generalizations that merely annoy.

      I was surprised more barbershop music wasn't made available on Bandcamp --

      though there was a nice album or two available from the Irish (IAMBS)

      champs. It's free to list and they only take 15%. So why aren't more choruses

      and quartets using it? Especially since they allow someone to "listen before

      they buy".



      Is it because getting clearances to record and sell music is too

      difficult? Or does the average age of the barbershop crowd preclude such "hip"

      outlets? :-)
