Been working on this one for quite a while now, but very soon (not just yet) I will announce www.ronkane.com
I’ve been writing 5 days a week since July, 2002. I’ll try to distill some of the better writing once we get to the new site.
2011 may well be a ‘turning point’ year for me. The only new music discovery for me recently is Polar Bear, from England. http://www.polarbearmusic.com/wordpress/ British jazz and wonderful.
I am buying tons of 45’s, as I feel that I still have a lot to learn from 45’s. My retirement is still a ways off, but I thought that I’d better get a dedicated website up and running for a few years, before I try to depend upon it for income.
That’s right! I am going to have a website where I sell stuff. Not interested in Yahoo or Amazon; the fees at eBay drive me nuts. With my own site, I can set the prices – and not have to ‘watch auctions’. Set sale only.
I ran a small mail-order company in the 80’s called ANZ (for Australia / New Zealand), so it’s not like I haven’t done this all before. I’ve worked in numerous record stores since 1976, I worked for Music Inferno before most people even realized the power of the internet – way back in the mid-90’s!
It was hell getting it released from Google / Go Daddy, but with the help of Barbara Hughes, this monumental feat was accomplished.
So, my website will be www.ronkane.com and will officially be called “Ron Kane – Music Life”. Not sure if I’ll get a Chase account (shopping cart), or if payment for stuff will be via PayPal. Any thoughts?
You can go there now, but you will be greeted with a “Host Gator” screen, as no content has yet been added.
