Stewboss january 2010 news Letter.

Exciting News!

This past Saturday night, Bob Harris of BBC Radio2 in the UK played "Love Under Main Street Lights", track 1 from our new record, "Pilgrims & Runaways"!!! (WOW! Thanks to our fans in the UK for emailing us right away to let us know!)

Bob Harris just wrote us today to say he plans to play another track from the new record on next Saturday's program too! His show broadcasts throughout England, Scotland and Wales, and there are plenty more listening online around the world, so this is very, very cool.

Be sure to tune-in this Saturday if you live in the UK, or even if you don't, you can listen online too! And, if you like the song, please email Bob (www.bobharris.org) and ask him to play more Stewboss music!

In other news...

The new album, "Pilgrims & Runaways", will be released on March 30th, so mark your calendars now. Also, we plan to upload the first video from the album, for the song "No One" in mid-February. (This video was REALLY fun to make, so we can't wait for you to see it!)

Oh, and one other thing... Starting January 30th (Gregg's birthday!), our entire back-catalog of physical CDs will be marked-down to a special price of just FIVE BUCKS at CDBaby (www.cdbaby.com)! So, if you've been missing one of our CDs in your collection, now is the time. (And remember, our music makes a great gift too! Hint-Hint.)

Stay tuned for more exciting news as we get closer to the release date of "Pilgrims & Runaways"...

And, as always, thanks so much for your continued support of the band and our music!

Best wishes,

The guys in "the mighty" Stewboss

"The mighty Stewboss" - sounds like a Bob Harris quote to me :)

Gregg's song list TOP 50 from 2000-2009

So, Rolling Stone, Spin and every other music rag is posting their Top 20 songs of the decade, and I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon. That said, I couldn't possibly narrow it down to only 20 songs, so here are my TOP 50 from 2000-2009. Enjoy... ~ Gregg Sarfaty
