All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

  1. Hey AZ. It's been a long hard day helping our daughter get ready to move back down to LA after the holidays. So weary I can't believe it. Thats' why finding this Doc and Merle post was like a shot of joy juice for me. Just what I needed to turn my attitude around. Thanks more than I can say.


  2. Doc is a true National treasure - thanks for this Show AZ! Now I have to figure out if I listen to this or the NRBQ show I found last night on the way to work this morning! Both great ways to start my day
