    4 Bars Rest, do they care? I think not.

    I am intrigued, for the passed few weeks we have had the Area Contests and not one interview has been posted on $ bars rest, Oh sorry that should be 4 bars rest.

    However, now that Wales has been completed I wonder how long it will be before the interview with Cory, Tredegar etc will appear?

    How long will it be before all areas were considered the same. After all they could not even be bothered visiting the Ballroom at the Winter Gardens, except for the results.

    How sad is that. Good old Malcolm Wood, ................................... who?

    Normally it's people complaining about too much bias and interviews with Welsh bands!

    Here's a thought, why doesnt someone use some gumption and their own resources, before getting enough exposure to justify income streams, and set up a new brass band forum or news site , access free, other than in Wales?

    Easy to knock people who have done it, not so easy to take the risk yourself methinks.

    Well said.

    Whilst I don't always agree with what 4BR writes, I do appreciate the value of the site to the banding world and I know that they work very hard to bring us a good resource.

    And as for the comment from another poster about selling advertising, CDs etc. - they are a business and good luck to them. No-one is forced to buy from them. Making money is not a crime, as long as it is done legally.

    Keep it up, 4BR, and don't let these negative comments put you off. There are far more of us that value you than don't.
    Will you please ask the trombonists to stop firing wads of paper at the tam-tam?

    I have no pleasure in any man who despises music. It is no invention of ours: it is a gift of God. I place it next to theology. Satan hates music: he knows how it drives the evil spirit out of us.

    The title to this thread asks "Do they care?" I would suggest that it's precisely because they do care that they do what they do. They can't be all things to all people and I, as with others who have commented, don't always agree with what they do or say, but I most certainly value the site. I hope that they're making enough money to at least make it worth their while because if they aren't then how long will it be around?

    My comment was in response to the poster who asked "why do they bother?", I was just trying to explain why they might thats all.
    4br on the whole 'add value' to our hobby, although I do remember fondly in the early days them being a tad more 'ballsy' in their observations on the banding scene, when they went all establishment and threw in with SP&S that was sadly lost,imo.
