NO SIR, It's not easy single-handedly running what has often been referred to as: "the best free vintage music web-site on the internet".
And it may very well be, but this wonderful resource still costs thousands of dollars per year in operating expenses alone.
All the while long unpaid hours are spent daily updating, expanding and developing our future content.
