Some misquotes and some misinformation - but mostly good. Tomorrow Fred and I will meet with the owner of The Enigma for an interview that will be published in a couple of weeks. The Pulse is doing something shortly thereafter.

Cool-I will seriously pray that it is accurate, prominately placed, long,etc. BTW-the update on the web page looks great-its finally coming together-do the jitters start now, or have they been there? Anyway, with two shows, that means the second one will be extra PERFECT!!!! Can't wait!!!!

There was some incredable local promotion tonight. Julie, Bethany, Peter (Bethany's boyfriend) and I were VIP guests at an AAA Women's Services banquet full of prominent types tonight. (Senators, Congressmen, etc.) Our table of 7 was hosted and paid for by Congressman Zach Wamp. Julie sat next to his wife and there was much talk of GH all through the evening. After the key-note speaker they talked up the Tivoli show (all proceeds go to AAA - a GREAT cause!) and played a DVD of some of the Live At Belmont hi-lights. From that point on we were treated like rock-stars. That put GH in front of around 1,000 people tonight. The response was tremendous.

That is GREAT news. i know of a few at my church that were involved in the local AAA walk for life earlier this year. Bob Corker was there and a major supporter of that-maybe they can get him on board too. And what about the Chattanooga mayor-He was actually present and acknowledged at a CCM concert in Chattanooga earlier this year. The possibilities are endless?

They had to go and open that can of worms again, so guess what-I took an opportune time and responded. C'mon Elric, Robjob, and others-help me out!This is a perfect opportunity to plug the show-cause they're not going to-positively anyway!

Well I made mention of the concert and Chattanooga finally gets to see at the Tivoli one of their own, but my post got kicked out by the moderator :? I was totally positive, but I guess they do not care for someone giving a little push out there. Oh well, I will refrain from saying anything until I see more press out there and hope that there will be something very promising.

As a Cardinal of Glass Hammer We declare The Pulse to be heretical. Followers of GH will shun them or face excommunication. We find The Enigma to be gooderns and bestow the impremature thereof. :D

The Pulse has a press-kit and has promised Ed an article on the show. I wouldn't say their response was overly enthusiastic - cuz they just don't get it. But lets at least wait and see if they follow-through or not.
And keep in mind - in all probability they'll sign on as guests and read our forum to see what's been said about The Pulse. This forum has an easy search function.
So, we've given them a great opportunity to support a local act on the rise - give it a couple of weeks.

But yes to Fred - the Enigma has always been good to us. ALWAYS. And we've never bought an ad - they just treat us right.
