Down On The Corner
By Paul Moffett

Louisvillians who were here during the Sixties have no doubt been following the adventures of Marvin Maxwell and the Louisville Lost & Found with Duke Meyerradio show, where old master recordings are being resurrected and played. Now a new addition to the catalog has come around: Gearfab Records, a company run by Roger Maglio in Florida is releasing The Oxfords: Flying Up Through the Sky Part 2, a set of 16 tunes recorded by the band between 1969 and 1971 but never released. The list of songs is printed in Gearfab's ad on Page 11. The CD will be available exclusively in Louisville at ear X-tacy Records or online at www.swiftsite.com/gearfab.

It's always a pleasure to report that one of Louisville's music business folks have gotten some recognition. This time, it's the Music-Go-Round store on Hurstbourne Lane, which recently won the coveted U.S.E.D. Award for 2006, and was named as Store of the Year out of all Music-Go-Round stores nationwide at the annual 2007 NAMM convention. Dave Howard won the national #1 Music-Go-Round-Salesperson of the Year award; Greg Bryant, won the national #2 Music-Go-Round Salesperson of the Year award and Richard Herrell, won the national #3 Music-Go-Round Salesperson of the Year award as well as the Sore Fingers Award for Most Transactions Completed.

Way to go, guys.

WYCS Channel 24, the TV station that airs "The Player's Spot" has been rebranded as LouisvilleNetwork and may soon change 'call letters' to WLOU (TV). In addition, sometime in mid-May, Insight Communications will "test"(read: move) the station somewhere in the analog channels, to see if there is interest in moving it from it's current location in the digital section at 138. Call and tell them if you see it there and maybe it'll be permanent.
