“The Voice” & His Vehicles

Frank Sinatra was called “The Voice” from early in his career.   He was heard on his first recording with the Harry James Band singing “All Or Nothing At All” which sold about 8,000 copies that year, later to sell millions as he became better known.

Green Replacement Straws for Gear Heads - Its a great idea!

Here is a great idea for gear heads, for all pros and especially us amateurs! It is pretty simple but we have all been there! I lose them all the time.
