Hello Kentucky music fans! Yes I’m still alive and well and I’m currently planning a new strategy for my random rumors, rhetoric, and reviews about Kentucky and Louisville’s rock music scene! Please forward and save www.TheScuttlebuttHour.com

Bear with me for the moment while I finalize my new strategy and forge new relationships with new media channels. I also still have to obtain all my past interviews and stories I’ve written while at LMN. Once I get them, I’ll upload to this site.
