No. 300

Goddamn. Just look at that number. 300. Not all were as perfect as a bowling score, but still … that's a lot of friggin' words. And I haven't run out yet. It's hard to believe that six years ago Column No. 1, an interview with then-hot property Willy Mason, was published, Dec. 2, 2004.

Music Issue 2010: Finding Their Sound

Two of Omaha’s better-known studios don’t feel endangered by the rise of desktop computer do-it-yourself home studios in the Omaha area. Owners of both Ware House Productions and Rainbow Music Recording Studio say the demand for their expertise remains high and they don’t see any computer program replacing real, professional studio spaces any time soon. Nils Erickson, who’s owned...
