now I friended you and the button was unfriended ...hmmmm. I'm wondering if this is because of some privacy settings on my end, can y ou tell me again? also i have an inordinate amount of members without pictures and i can't find where to make a default icon anymore, it seems like ning just changed a bunch of stuff that we were used to that worked fine. ha.
Let's see i'll try and comment back. good to find another ning friend. I started this site the day of the changeover and it's been buggy as hell, I've done about 20 of these things and never had this problem before, i tried to sign in with an alt email and password and wouldnt let me. you said it best you havent' done anything different on your end, let me know if you get a satisfactory answer, i finallly got a ticket for a billing question and archiving, have you figured that out? i can't download the archiver, so i have to pay them an extra $30 a month cause i can't arhive so i dont' lose my hundreds of hours of work, what a mess

Lisi Tribble about Gerdes Folk City: "Jay Byrd was the last hooter- Dustin Hoffman based his character "Hawk" in Ishtar on him. Enamel the Camel. The Roches. Rick Danko. David Massengill. George Gerdes. Eric Andersen. Mark Johnson. Gregory Fleeman. Jack Hardy. Robin Williamson. Tret Fure. Ferron. Sammy Walker. Lach. . .--Anderson,
Bob Dylan was also below age when he first played there. Mike signed his guardianship forms."
"I loved it when the Village was still like a small community, a town within Manhattan, and mostly "regulars" would hang out.....I always felt so welcome there... Bring back them old days!"
"This website is gonna catch on fire. Great idea! When I get to something other than an iPhone I'll upload some pix and stuff. I'll be keeping tabs...I Think this kind of organized exposure for the artists willing to perform is Great. going to blossom"
~Bob Porco (grandson of Mike)
"Thanks so much for putting this whole thing together, and for inviting me to participate. I have such wonderful memories of the Bitter End and all the other coffee houses: Gerde's Folk City, The Gaslight Cafe... saw so many wonderful artists perform."
