~herndon december news~

and Happy Holidays!
Hoping to see you at a show sometime soon...
Here's some news, 'til then.
New CD.   Still a few copies left of the new album, All Fall Down  :-)   And again, under the direction of Lloyd Maines and his golden ears, who says of it:  "looks great and sounds great."
Radio play.   Rich Warren, WFMT Chicago DJ and revered host of The Midnight Special out of Chicago, recommended the new CD All Fall Down in his "Rich's Picks" and played "The Bad Roads of Oklahoma" on his Saturday night show (apparently they have bad roads in Illinois too.)  It will eventually be on the national show sometime in late January or early February.  And we understand that John Wooley has been playing "Oklahoma Girl" on his great Saturday night show, Swing on This, on KWGS.  And we're told that Davit Souders is playing some of the new tunes on his cool Monday night show on RSU radio.  Thanks guys!
Press.   Speaking of John Wooley... he wrote a lovely article called "Home in Oklahoma" about the new album in this month's December issue of the beautiful Oklahoma Magazine.
Thanks to both John and to Oklahoma Magazine.
New Website.  ... is up and still under construction... but some of the new tunes are up and there's some other stuff on there and even a blog... more links and photos to add, and album info, and lyrics... it's a work in progress... Thanks to all who have visited and signed the guestbook, made comments on the blog, and signed up for the newsletter... otherwise, you know, it feels like a big vacuum out here in cyberspace.
CD Release Dates.   Still adding more and more dates to the calendar... this month, with special CD Releases in Bixby at Buster's Guitars and one in Kansas, Oklahoma at Hickory Tree House Concert.  The Tulsa CD Release will be on January 29th at the new Blue Rose Cafe.  More dates to be announced soon... We can't do this without you; and we wouldn't want to, so YOU COME, TOO! 
Buy the new CD.   ... It is the Holiday Season... you can purchase the CD at the website or at the online store  CDs are also available at Tulsa Violin Shop, and also, in Tulsa:  at Starship, Ida Reds, Mecca Coffee, Dwelling Spaces, (and many thanks to our very special distributor of lovers of savage sumptuous songs and also to those of you who have bought the new cd in bulk and delivered them one by one to a new home ... we love and appreciate you and we could not do this without you!)
