problems and changes
The number of listeners, artists and other contacts are growing and
a MySpace with all of those groups mixed up is difficult to make
sense of. Also, since I started the policy of putting the artists
most recently featured on the show into the Top Friends category,
and all other artists in the All Friends section lots of people
have said how good it is to know that anyone on there is going to
be worth a serious listen. What's more, it's an easy way to keep up
with what's happening with personal favourite artists who may not

venues, promoters, etc.

is a space where musicians and listeners can find a growing body of
promoters, venues, studios, other podcasts, etc. I'll get that up
in the next couple of days and link to it from the main SnC MySpace
It will all be live in the next few days, so if you've recently
asked to be a friend, please would you go to the relevant MySpace
link and do it again, this time you'll get a much quicker response
