WELCOME MANU AND SANDRA TO THE BHW CREW Manu Sachdeeva is at full-throttle as BHW's broadcasting boss, coordinating the live netcasts you find at http://www.bigheavyworld.com/streamery.html. He's gunning to keep Jesse and Mark running around like headless chickens every weekend streaming Burlington music online from the heart of the city. Sandra McKernan joins us as the Goddess of task management, our new (utterly dominating) Office Manager... though the plants she waters in our dinky sweatshop think of her in less threatened terms. :)

STICKER JIM'S SORRY-ASS TRUCK If you happen to be walking by a red Toyota pickup in downtown Burlington with Vermont plate #ANF516 and you're carrying a manbag full of your band's stickers, slap one on the ass-end. Why? Dunno, can't tell you. But Jim & Victoria won't mind. Really. Just make sure you got the right truck...
BHW SERVER MAINTENANCE SUNDAY 10/21 The BHW Web site will be offline Sunday, October 21 in the A.M. for a server upgrade. We'll give you the details next time 'round, but hang loose during the upgrade and in a few weeks we'll do our best to amaze you with some new additions to the site.
BHW THANKS Thanx to Burlington City Arts for letting us poster the Firehouse Gallery barricade for the 242.01 CD release party. It's off-limits usually, but they're lending support this way. Very cool of Sara and the crew. Thanks to Dave Bishop and the bands and volunteers who helped us poster and flyer for the 242.01 CD Release party!!!
