Subject: RE: BS: Welcome Larry Saidman.
Thanks Jack,\

Actually I am registered on mudcat, but keep losing the cookies thanks to my malware detector (I guess).   I do occasional posts....usually on the music threads, but this time I drifted into the other one.

I live in Canada....a small town in B.C.   I've been a music fanatic since I was very small, with an extreme in eclectic favourite records are those by the likes of John Stewart, Pearls Before Swine, Mickey Newbury, David Lynn Jones, Cheryl Wheeler, Elyse Weinberg, Van Dyke Parks, Randy Newman, (Beverly) Glenn-Copeland, and I like to continue to explore new stuff as well.   

I'm also an amateur musician playing bass, guitar, keyboard, and french horn. I'm getting more interested in playing 'jazz' oriented material.

And lastly, of interest to mudcatters (and at some point I'll make this into a thread), I'm involved in an organization trying to start a community radio station in my town (Penticton).....and within a month or so we expect to start with online streaming, which will be available to anyone.

And (sorry for the cheap pitch), I'm putting together (not as an ego trip, but as an excuse to play and re-familiarize myself with the music I've grown to love), a program called "Larry Saidman's Top 200 Albums of All Time".   Once I have a few shows recorded, it will be on our Peach City website ( and I'm also hoping to get a 'blog' where some of these albums/programs can be discussed.

Being technlogically challenged....we'll see how it all works.

One of the things I most enjoy about the mudcat forum is a certain respectfulness and acceptance for other people's tastes and 'quirks' that so often shines through.

I guess that's why I get concerned when I see this evaporating.

Thanks for the opportunity to express where I'm at, Jack.
