Hey Songwriters!


One of the highlights of our annual CD release event is a raffle of previous Songwriters Circle CDs and donated stuff, including concert tickets, mugs, T-shirts, etc. donated by Calliope and Bloomfield Bridge Tavern. Among the hottest donated items are independent CDs and EPs from Circle members and people associated with Calliope.

Please consider donating one or several of your recordings. Donated items are wrapped in gift baskets prior to arrival at Pittsburgh Center for the Arts — I can’t take them night of the event. But you can drop them off tonight (Oct. 15), Oct. 22 or Oct. 29 at the open stage at BBT, bring them to my Oct. 26 Halloween party, drop them off at the Post-Gazette (34 Blvd. of the Allies, Downtown — no need to park, call me at work at 412-263-1991 and I’ll meet you at the curb) or mail them to me at John Hayes, 101 Daggette Dr., Buena Vista, PA 15018.

You’ll get a very grateful shout-out at the event and the group’s appreciation. The raffle generates revenue used to maintain the group website and pay for misc. expenses.
