from Becky's Schedule of Cool Music Stuff (October 25, 2007)
you for all the nice comments and notes you sent last month while
I was on Vacation. My husband and I took a road trip through various
parts of New England - it was Wonderful and Relaxing! I had lots
of time to think about the future plans for Cool
makes me sad to end this part of my life, I have come to a decision
to cease publication of Becky's Schedule
of Cool Music Stuff's monthly newsletter.
I was just
22 in 1997. In trying to schedule my life around live music, BSOCMS
was born. Shows make me so happy that I found a way to share it
with everyone. It seems like another lifetime and I never thought
I would still be doing this 10 years later.
Before I go,
I want to say Thank you for all the Support, great Music, new
People, and wonderful Friends I've met along the way.
I can't possibly
thank everyone who's been important to me, but I wanted to mention
some special people and memories (in no particular order).
