We’re building a shed
It’s been nearly a year since we moved into the premises we currently share with our good friends at Borealis Records.
During that time, my partner Andy Frank has been diligently working on a more or less regular schedule there, holding down the fort as it were.
He’s been joined on a sporadic basis by sporadic bassist and sometime web developer Trevor Mills, plus a cast of miscellaneous irregulars and me.
These days I’m spending more and more time in the office, along with an increasing number of volunteers, interns, partners and participants in the many wacky things we do.
It’s all been great, but there’s been one thing missing – one item that no self-respecting web startup music media concern can afford to be without.
That’s right folks: it pains me to confess this, but there has NOT BEEN A SHED in the Roots Music Canada office.
It’s nobody’s fault, of course. It’s just one of those things that sort of… got stuck on the to-do list.
But it’s my responsibility, and I’m going to straighten it out. Tomorrow. Come Sunday, we should have a shed. And if we’re lucky, we’ll be broadcasting from it by Monday.
We’re about to open a door – like a beat-up old screen door – into a whole new way of making media in Canada. With a toboggan. Some old hockey sticks. Snowshoes. Possibly a canoe paddle. Zen Canadiana and all that.
We’d tell you more, but we can’t right now. It’s a secret. Trust us, you’re going to love this. We’ll tell you the whole story soon.
