A big congrats to station KCAU with their winning video entry “Sioux City Musketeers Intro Video 2014″. You are now the proud owners of one of my favorite and treasured guitars: a 1980 Gibson Les Paul Custom signed by Les Paul!
This has been a really fun contest for us at SAM, and we are excited to have received so many entries, such enthusiasm and thousands of votes. It’s been great to see what amazing creative is being produced by our friends and colleagues at local stations. Really cool. While there is only one winner, I think we can all be inspired by seeing all these great spots!
We want to thank everyone for their participation in our first “What’s the Sound of Your Story” contest. And I want to say “good-bye” to my guitar.

Season’s Greetings Everyone,
We’re back again this Holiday Season hoping to make our industry aware of this great organization, Little Kids Rock™.
Little Kids Rock™ provides free music lessons and instruments to underserved public school kids around the country.
Last year we were able to put 60 brand new acoustic guitars into the hands of children by raising over $3000 selling our Christmas CD, The Six Strings Of Christmas, which features many of our great Texas studio friends playing their own 6-string yuletide arrangements (100% of the proceeds go to Little Kids Rock).
Each CD costs just $9.99, and 100% of the proceeds are donated to Little Kids Rock, which means:
- 1 CD = Provides a child with three months of music lessons!
- 5 CDs = Puts a brand new acoustic guitar into a child’s hands!
- 10 CDs = Supplies a keyboard and amp to a public school music class!
So with the purchase of “The Six Strings of Christmas” by Stephen Arnold Music, you will be helping Little Kids Rock provide free instruments and music lessons to disadvantaged public school students in some of the most economically challenged communities in the United States!
Thanks for giving our children the right to rock!
