Subject: RE: A Wonderful New Folk Venue Opens.
Hi Chance. 'Fraid I don't know the details about booking, but my guess is that a package sent to Hugh's Room care of Holmes Hooke (he's the one who called me for my Monday night thing) would produce results. I'll put in a good word.

The other venue that many artists use for their first trip through Toronto is The Free Times Cafe (sorry, I don't have the phone number, but it shouldn't be hard to find). I'm a big believer in phoning first before sending packages.

Just from a personal standpoint vis a vis my radio show: I get approximately 15 CDs per week for airplay and after a while they really start piling up. Sometimes it's quite a while before I have the time to listen to the backlog, and although many are really good, I tend to play the ones that are most traditionally based (the CD I received from you has had a few airplays) but sometimes a phonecall jogs the memory. A Northeast tour sounds good.
