There is a Richmond Music Journal group page on Facebook where you all can join and post your own photos and gigs. There's many photos posted there that I've taken over the years or people gave to me. I don't "friend" musicians I only know through the Journal on my regular Facebook page because that's for the life I'm living now, but feel free to remember old times on the group page, and don't feel insulted if I don't friend you. Unless we spent a lot of time together at some point, I probably will not. But you can follow me on Twitter all you want:, although you will be bored. I don't talk about music there.

The complete 11 years of print copies of the
Richmond Music Journal are available on microfilm at the State Library of Virginia and Virginia Commonwealth University library for your researching pleasure.
