Joel's Classical Shop in first post

The link has been at the top of the site navigation for weeks now, tantalizing you. You kept clicking it, hoping against hope that there would finally be an entry. Ah, the possibilities of a regular classical music blog written by local guys who listen to it all day! You couldn't help dreaming about it, night after night. It practically haunted your every waking thought. What kind of sick twisted people were these guys at Joel's to keep that darn link up there but never write a blog post? When would they relieve your suffering?

Well, sorry -- it's taken us a little while to get this off the ground, what with all that Christmas traffic. We've had time to catch our breath now, and rest assured, we'll be posting our thoughts on recent CD releases and old favorites, great composers (some now forgotten), local concerts we attend, new musical masterpieces, the state of the classical recording industry, and (of course) the ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything.

Michael and I both plan to post regularly, and perhaps we can even talk Joel into sharing his wisdom and experience online, for all of you who are frustrated with just barely missing him in the store (you know who you are). Please let us know if you have any questions, suggestions, or comments, good or bad. Welcome to our new blog!

Your Friend in Music,
