With summer now in full swing, more people are at the beach, on vacation, mowing lawns, and so forth and so on. The Saturday morning regular episode makes no sense. We are just going to do causal lunch time streams until after Labor Day. Hopefully, we can get Chris up and running at his shop in Wilmington, DE so we can double your fun!

Military bands are under the Congressional knife, and may be cut for good. There is something you can, AND MUST, do. And it will only take a few minutes of your time to make your voice heard by your elected representatives.
We started out streaming on Saturday mornings at 9am ET on our YouTube channel, but are now scheduling shows for 10:30am ET on our Facebook page. (See the Show Schedule page for more information.)
Why the changes?
Well, we listened to our viewers and our guests. It was clear that we get TONS more views on Facebook, and that a later start on Saturday mornings was appreciated, especially on the west coast of the US.
So, FOR NOW, we will live stream on Facebook, and archive on YouTube.
AND, we will continue to add Casual Streams, which will be easy-going and whenever we feel like doing it. Those will be archived on YouTube, as well.
Please let us know how you feel about the times, the hosting, or whatever. We want to give you programming you enjoy and find valuable.
The IHS 2016 Exhibits Roundup was a live stream on Facebook on Saturday, June 18, 2016, and is now archived on our YouTube channel. You can watch it on our Episodes page.
This episode is now archived on our YouTube channel, and you can watch it on our Episodes page. The stream doesn't really start until around 2:50, so just jump to there. We had a few tech difficulties, which we hope to erase in the future. Sorry about that.
Dave shows that disassembly can be as important as assembly as he takes apart several instruments. Watch it on our Videos page.
This week's Saturday stream will start at around 10:30am. Chris will give us his ITG roundup report, and Dave does a little What's On The Bench.
Had a great visit with Ken Pope, of Pope Instrument Repair. You can also view the episode on our episode page.
We talked about how he got started, what he's doing now, what horns he sells, his work on museum pieces, and other far-ranging topics such as squirrels, chickens, and glass blowing.
Look for the podcast of the show. I'm new at editing podcasts, so bear with me as I figure out how to bring you a quality, pared down interview!
This Saturday's live stream episode will feature Ken Pope, of Pope Instrument Repair. Ken is on his way to exhibit at DC Horn Day at Catholic University of America (Sunday, June 5), and agreed to chat on the live stream show. Topics will include brass repairs and modifications, Ken's work on museum pieces, his story, and how blowing glass relates to instrument repair. Also, chickens and squirrels.
The show airs live at 9am EDT (UTC-4) on our YouTube channel, and should run about 90 minutes to 2 hours. Join in by catching the live show and chatting, or send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
