I just did my first studio gig playing solo, blues slide, harp and Sax for a National Endowment for the Arts, PBS radio program.
More knobs and sliders in there than a Line 6. No free beer though but after they ran me thru the board I sounded GOOD.
I don't know when the program will be aired but I'll let you know. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would get
National exposure of anykind.

Good goin' oleman! Stuff like that is great for the ol' confidence level, and it's always great to expand your network.

Thanks Jeffl, Yes my ego has inflated a bit and now other producers are calling me to work on their projects for voice overs and music. I thought I was destined to only play the beerjoints and coffeehouses. This opportunity only came about from me getting off my butt and going to an audition for a part in a movie. I assume producers must share a data base of talent.

One of the toughest parts about making money in the music business is finding the income sources. One of the most successful guys I know quit gigging probably 25 years ago (he had substance issues) and stayed in the business by producing childrens' music; he does whatever he can, writing kids' songs for other bands, doing soundtrack stuff, etc. He works out of a storefront studio he built downtown for a minimal investment.

Oleman -- Congrats, and all the best to you. Sometimes it takes one thing to set a lot of other things in motion.
Yes, be sure to let us know when it'll air.
Maybe no free beer, but did you get a totebag? :P
