That’s right it was one year ago today that Making a Scene was officially launched .. Here is what we have accomplished up to now!
We have published 486 articles Which equals over 9 posts a week! CD Reviews, Artist Interviews, articles on Music Business, and so much more! I have to thank all our writers, Richard Ludmerer, one of the most prolific writers I have come across! Bob Putignano giving his insight on CD’s old and new. Rhetta who writes for the Examiner and does a fantastic job reviewing CD’s and shows for us. Along with Rick Lusher, Thomas Honeyman, Lucia, LAW and so many more! We would not be as successful without them!
