For years, I’ve been trying to find some sort of visual evidence that we were even there at Nixon’s second inaugural concert. I called the Kennedy Center, I wrote to PBS, who televised the concert, and to the local DC newspapers, none of which produced a single thing.
Thanks to Ron Youngs, we have the video of the event as it was broadcast back in 1973. Clink on any of the links or photos to go to the event page.
As I mentioned a while ago, I had to transfer the domain registration and DNS service from one provider to Google Domains. I believe that this transfer is complete, however your home computer may have old information stored and hasn’t quite yet got the update. That information should be updated within a day, I suspect.
There is no action for you to take. Please let me know if any problems accessing the site are NOT cleared up within a day or so.
Thanks everyone for your patience! I appreciate it greatly. Hopefully, it’s all back to normal.
BandSir is moving domain registrars. What that means is that sometimes, the domain name servers around the world may not have the current information to reach BandSir. Clearing browser and DNS caches may help alleviate the issue.
I’ve never used this site for any kind of public service announcement, but these are indeed difficult times.
First and foremost, nearly everyone reading this post is in the high-risk group if only because of the dates of our births. Many of us have health issues, some minor, others not so minor. Bottom line: this pandemic has the potential to take a lot of us if we’re not careful.
I urge you to abide by the guidelines put out by the CDC. While we can’t yet quantify it, social distancing seems to be doing some good. So please do your part. Do the right thing even if you think it’s a crock. Lives depend on us doing our best.
But the real reason I am making this post is to wish all of you and yours a safe, land-mine/free journey to the other side of this pandemic. It’s always hard enough when The Forge announces Taps for our fellow alumni. Please don’t let it be one of you.
Two people provided me with this record, and for the life of me, I can’t find a record (pun intended!) of who sent them. Since both album covers are signed by the members of the dance band, I would like to return them. If you’re one of ’em, please let me know and I’ll return them promptly.
