Howdy folks.  Merry Christmas.  I wrote and did a Christmas song and posted it in the video section.  Can anyone help me out by converting it to MP3 and sending it to Steve?   Here is the link"

John maybe record it onto your phone and turn it into a file? 

Ha, Steve!  You must think I am in the 21rst century.   I have an old flip phone and would no know how to do that.  Maybe someone else can do it from the link.  If not, no worries.  I had fun writing the song and a video. 

Thanks for what you do, Steve.  Merry Christmas.

I can try to do this for you.

Thank you, Rich!

Où se trouve l'album ?

Hey Steve,

I'm a long time member of Cigar Box Nation, and a first time builder of a CBG just recently. I have a strong background in music as a singer and I have played many types of instruments since I was  a kid. The one thing I am not is a song writer, but I think I would like to offer a submission for the album with an old African/American Christmas song that is in the public domain. Is that acceptable? Also, is there a time limit on the submission as this song can get a bit strung out if you do the entire piece, but it can be easily modified. I appreciate any information you can share with me.

Rick Flink

Anything you think others will enjoy is fine, Rick!

I've sent an original one, "Chrispy Icicles".

A last minute reminder for song submissions - MONDAY 21ST is the latest i can accept new submissions so be getting busy this weekend with those tooons !! 

... I'm not ready because i was workin on many other projects at same time...

... I'm waiting for this very precious album...

Thank you very much for this big stuff done each year Slowpaw Steve... °<[:-)[---]==={...
