The late MICHAEL STEPHENSON was one of the most popular musicians ever to come out of the Shenandoah Valley.  He will always be remembered for his tremendous raspy tenor vocal characteristics and his enduring stage presence. Unfortunately this CD is the only one he personally will ever perform his songs. You will be missed my friend.

DUGO'S BLOG
A  blog From Chuck Dugo Questions you need to ask yourself before you go to a recording studio. 

1) Why? Is it to advance your career as a performer, to record songs in which you think other performers may be interested, as a gift for friends and family, or maybe you just want to get ideas down. 

2) What? Are they songs you've written? Did you copyright them? 
Are they cover songs? Do you have the legal rights to use them? 
Do you need help developing your songs into finished productions? 

3) When? Are you ready? Do you have a vision of what the finished product should be? Do you have the right instruments and musicians? 

4) Where? Have you chosen the best studio? Do they have the equipment and personnel to accomplish your goals? Do they have the contacts necessary to get you where you want to go. 

Next time we will be interviewing area musicians.
