What an amazing afternoon in Tarzana, a little patch of dirt in the West part of the San Fernando Valley, West of Encino and Sherman Oaks. About 20 hit and aspiring songwriters, and/or performing songwriters showed off their work product to Mr. Braheny for instant feedback. John volunteered his time, and was joined by his wife Jo Ann. The host Toni K., of, among other things, Warrior Girl Music, filled in for Paul L. Moyer, who had an emergency to deal with but who deserved a bit of a break, I am sure.
Well, the day was filled with the likes of columnist and radio host Larry Wines who hosts "Acoustic Americana Radio Also known as Tied to the Tracks. He offers live in-studio performance opportunities and it airs Saturdays at 6 am to 10 am on KCSN radio or streaming on line at www.kcsn.org. We had young stars in the making playing piano live singing passionately about wishing on a star making dreams reality and wow was that incredible.
John M. had his amazing guitar and vocals there to entertain us and had many useful comments for fellow workshop attendees. Doug Welch who helped me put this blog up on line is the key note speaker for next month, (First Sunday of each month at Coffee Junction Tarzana on Ventura Blvd. just East of Tampa Ave. Check it out, also see Songsalive.org. Last show at Talking Stick is coming up in April so be there to say goodbye, the place is being redesigned by a corporate entity that sells coffee.... guess who.

Bye for now, Sterling Edward
