I laughed my ass off reading this. You and I would have been friends if we had met before all of this.
There is always a way around any gov't rule or regulation. It's how big business succeeds. But sometimes, the little guys gets it right, too.
Mike... when you truly become a rich and famous author, help ME get published, too.
Until then - everybody: Never mind the Bollocks! Read Mike Rogers' blog!

Fantastic post. A bit unusual why you were holding this back for so long but it was worth the wait. Will you write a follow up post on why, "We never were able to repeat the wild success..."?

Guys, I'd like to write the next chapter.... Someday... But can't right now as it might hurt some people who are still struggling in the music business...

Great post Mike.
Love the fact you managed to get through so many loopholes.
My grandad used to say that an expert was someone from the next town with the same qualifications.
Glad to see that syndrome's not limited to Australia!

"Good work, if, you can get it?" I think, I duplicated your procedure above, but Rodney or you, so far, do not much play the CD's from Mule-Go-Round Entertainment like Ishi played your songs. After I handed Missing Link CD's to Rodney, when I followed up on telephone he said, "Who are, you? I don't remember meeting you." A reference to my old song, I've Got A Guitar of the year Rodney played Christmas In Hawaii? "I don't want to be a rock n roll star, I want to be program director?" which I nwrote about Orange County's KNAC changing to a Metal format from Rock. That year also, I'd gone to KROQ, and left the CD at the studio desk. Rodney was concerned I parked my Blazer twenty feet away from his GTO on the bottom level, I was never a park as close to the elevator as I can guy, so Rodney freaked then too somehow? Then I went to the bar near KROQ, a pattern I had wanted to normalize, but none such ocvurremce?

"Tide pull away," Mike, was even written for.the earthquake survivores there in Japan, but little airplay you give?

Yea. That's good work if you can get it?'

Comments must be succinct & relevant to the story. Comments are checked frequently and abusive, rude or profane comments will be deleted. I’m just one of many bloggers who answer questions online and sometimes for the press. I usually handle questions about Japan, marketing or the economy, so in those areas I’m more likely to make sense and less likely to say something really stupid. If I post something here that you find helpful or interesting, that’s wonderful. This is my personal blog. If you don't like what you have read here then, just like when you go into a restaurant or bar that allows smoking, if you don't like it, there's something at the front that has hinges on it and it is called a "door."
