I'm still trying to catch my breath over this one. It was just another gray, late February morning here in the newsroom and I was toiling away doing this and that.
WHEN WHAT TO MY WONDERING EYES SHOULD APPEAR but the mother of all press releases.
Are you ready?
Let me hear you say it : "I'm ready, Aimsel, I'm really ready!"

Aimsel Ponti has been obsessed with - and inspired by- music since she listened to Monkees records borrowed from the town library when she was six years old. She's a huge fan of the local music scene and interviews an act every week for "Making Noise" which runs in the Press Herald GO section. You'll also find her out and about absorbing live music like a sponge and roaming around local record shops and flea markets.
