Quotes I had the pleasure of appearing on Bill Quinn's 'Disc Drive' last night along with my musical mate, Daniel McFeeley. I just wanted to say thanks to Artsound FM for a wonderful service in promoting local music. It's this kind of thing that makes us a community. I had to laugh at the frenetic pace of Bill's task. I've done a few radio spots in the past and it's always been a relatively relaxed affair, but the phone was ringing off the hook and Bill was running phone-in competitions, people were dropping in and out -- it was like watching a conductor managing an unruly orchestra. Thanks again for a great radio station and a great show. Quotes

Quotes I just wanted to drop you a line and give Bill Quinn a bit of a plug. I manage a Sydney-based artist named Mark Wilkinson who was performing over the weekend at the National Folk Festival. A local retailer I know, Froggy who owns Songland Records, recommended getting in touch with Bill. I did so and found him very hospitable and supportive, offering a beer and a chat about the local scene with Mark and me, and interviewing Mark for ArtSound FM on the spot. I look forward to hearing the end result on air and we appreciate the great support offered by community broadcasters. Quotes

Quotes Bill has done so much for Simone and me. Among many many things he has increased our CD sales, got bums on seats at our gigs and organised an artist endorsement from Takamine for myself. He single-handedly resurrected our enthusiasm, shouted dinner on several occasions and made us get off our butts when we got lazy. Quotes
