Eastern promise


II just thought you might be interested in an unexpected bonus of buying your magazine. I replied to a reader from the Ukraine who was prepared to send me his music for no charge so I mailed him some of mine in exchange. In his letter he explained that he was a film and theatre composer by trade and that he also ran the first national record label in the Ukraine. He also mentioned that he was interested in collaborating with us.

As a result, he is arranging exposure of our music through  his contacts, including airplay on Kiev's foremost radio station, and we are busy writing and recording lyrics to some of his instrumental 'Slavonic soul' music with a view to commercial release in the Ukraine.

So, for providing the seed that made it all possible, thank you.
