Adventures in
Entertainment, Technology &
Entrepreneurial Endeavours

edition 005


This edition of 'Adventures...' comes to you from the peaceful Surrey Hills countryside, the location of my first forays as a teenage music promoter.

As ever, here are a bunch of articles that have piqued my interest in the last week or two, plus some writing from my own fair hand.

I hope you like it; if you do then tell a friend - they can add themselves to the recipients list right here >
