'Twas the nights before NAMM, and all through the house, not a press
release was stirring . . . well, no, that's not true. In fact, I have a
huge stack of new releases, but they're all embargoed (meaning I can't
tell you about them) until Thursday or Monday.

So get ready. Lee Sherman, our CDM correspondent in LA, is standing by
for NAMM coverage. I'll be typing up what I can. And we expect a flurry
of major announcements Thursday and Monday which we'll (naturally) have
a hard time keeping up with and will probably continue to leak into
February. Stay tuned.
