As you probably know, I've participated in the last two Tape Op magazine conferences in New Orleans. While there I've been fortunate to meet some wonderful people and form some good friendships. As far as I know, my friends are all safe. But at least one couple lost their home and lifetimes of possessions. My heart goes out to them and everyone affected by Katrina. In order to hopefully add a couple of drops to the help bucket, the boys and girls at Sweet Science are donating all profits from sales of Rob C discs from CDBaby.com to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. Go to the "Store" page, choose a CD (or 3!) and click on "Buy this CD at CD Baby!" I realize this isn't much, but if everyone contributes just a little bit in some way we can get some help to these folks who've taken some awfully hard blows.
