Just last weekend, I was privileged to present an award to my dear friend, Jody Denberg, for his invaluable support of The SIMS Foundation, an organization near and dear to my heart. Twenty years ago, from the tragic suicide of musician Sims Ellison, my rehearsal-studio business partner and I started The SIMS Foundation: Services Invested in Musicians Support. To date, and because of generous support and donations from our community, SIMS has helped thousands of musicians who are in need of mental health and addiction services. Sending the proceeds from The KGSR Broadcast Volume CD series was Jody Denberg's brainchild. The money from the sale of those CD's was the lifeline of our organization; especially in the early years.
But the value of the many human lives saved is immeasurable. So yes . . . it certainly was a deeply moving and profound privilege to present Jody for his service to SIMS at The 20th Anniversary Gala!
Now y'all go out and get all your friends and family members KGSR's Broadcast Volume 23 before it sells out! Many great cuts on this one! You can purchase them at all these locations: All Austin area HEB locations (look for the Ziegenbock display), Antone's Records Central Market North & South Locations, Piranha Records, Waterloo Records, Wild About Music
