Bopping All Hours

OK so I'm the corner shop and Facebook is Tesco/Asda/ Sainsbury's and Morrison's combined. What I'm trying to do with this blog is to create a scene for local jazz groups and musicians to have their gigs publicised and reviewed - to promote and to keep the public informed of future gigs, CDs, and items of interest re the band etc. Many local bands and musicians do help me (and themselves) by providing up to date info but not all. What often happens is that I pick up items on Facebook that are past their sell by date that could have been given publicity.. So please, tell the fans on face book by all means, but also keep Bebop Spoken Here in the frame too. We're working for you and it gets networked on Facebook and Twitter anyway so remember we're always here when you run out of salt peanuts! salt peanuts! we're open till 'round midnight too.

Well said Lance. Except describing Bebop Spoken Here as a corner shop doesn't reflect the quality of the content. I think it's a top quality deli, artisan bakery and micro brewery.

Thank you Dave, Although if you'd seen the contents of my fridge you might delete the word 'micro'!
