Its great to see this site is still active. I was hoping it wouldnt die.
As a member of one of those bands from that era n Grand Rapids,this site is kind of special to me.
And I check it often.
Thanks again ! CB

Thanks, CB! I definitely plan on keeping this site active. And I'm adding more interactive features so people can easily contribute what they know so that this can become the ultimate knowledge base for this scene.

What band were you in?

Glad you're back!! Your site has been invaluable on my never-ending search for records on the incredible Fenton label. Wish you post some new mp3's - these have been on here forever!
Hope to see lots more updates!!!!
