Any way we can get Martin Bookspan to post here? He was active as a consultant to the old CI. I don't know if N2K paid him.

Do you know him, Lance?

Martin was the classical guru on "Prodigy" in the early days on music boards on the 'Net. He and I used to have many conversations and communications. We were supposed to meet for lunch in NYC, but timing was not good. But what a fine gentleman who shared his knowledge most willingly. It may be a possibility to have him post here. I could certainly try!

A great idea, Lance. I remember some of his comments on Prodigy, where I first got acquainted with online chats - and had conversations about various pianists with one Lance G. Hill - gosh, that was ages ago! One name I remember discussing with you was Michael Ponti - he hasn't been heard from much since. Remember?
