Hi there readers. How are you? It is Christmastime. A time for giving and sharing. A time for focusing on what really matters in our lives. Things like family and the people we love that make all this music stuff seem trivial.
As a father of a wondrous, beautiful, and exceptionally smart 14 month old little girl, I am truly blessed. The joy she brings to my wife and I is unmeasurable. I live every moment for her.
Sadly, though, there are others out there that life is not as fair to. One such child is Cal Robbins. Cal is the son of J. Robbins and Janet Morgan (both from the excellent band Channels). J. (who has also been in other great bands such as Jawbox and Burning Airlines) also produced records by some of my favorite bands like Braid and The Promise Ring. His son Cal (now 11 months old) was born with type 1 Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a debilitating genetic motor neuron disease. In fact, most kids with SMA don’t make it to age two. Please (in the spirit of the holidays) and in the spirit of helping people, consider making a donation. I know how much I love my daughter and can’t even imagine how J. and Janet are feeling right now. Please Make a donation if you are able. Thank you.
