The announcements are very generously aired at no cost by

hosted by Steve Snyder (right).  Dave, on the left, doesn't advertise for us, but he is an integral member providing the third voice that fills out the pleasing harmonies you'll hear when you listen to this group.  I'm thinking we may need a 'write-in' campaign to convince these guys to get an album recorded!
