This is the first in what I hope to be a recurring series of posts highlighting articles written by Bill Meredith, South Florida music journalist about town.
In addition to being a great writer with diverse interests and discriminating taste, Bill’s the closest thing I’ve had to a mentor in this part-time music journalism career of mine.
Besides, Bill keeps finding new ways to mention me in his column on local music in the Palm Beach Post. In reading his latest column on the Post’s music page, I was happy to see that it included a write-up on the Open Mike I regularly attend on Tuesday nights at the Havana Hideout in Lake Worth, hosted by Ric Pattison, open-mike veteran and British expatriate. While reading his discussion about the various musicians that perform at this Open Mike, I realized Bill had included my new song, “M Street”. I only just started playing this song in public a few weeks ago, so it was a pleasant surprise to receive publicity for it so early in its existence. I’ll have to start a scrapbook.
Read Bill’s column here. And since Bill doesn’t have a blog on the Post website, feel free to use this post to leave any comments you may have on his article. If nothing else, it will force Bill to read my blog on a regular basis.
