005: Happy Holidays! Guest Elise MacDonald of Studio 99

Originally recorded on December 29, 2009 in Sid’s studio, Sid and Dave quickly cover their Christmas presents, and then settle into a long discussion with guest (and good friend) Elise MacDonald, a music teacher who inadvertently started the alternative live music “listening room” STUDIO 99 in the heart of downtown Nashua. Topics range from the genesis of Elise’s business, the challenges facing the local music enthusiast, how creative collaborations start, and many other topics of shared mirth. Though the focus is somewhat regional, the experiences we share are probably applicable to many other mid-sized towns outside major cultural city centers. Links to some of the topics we mention are available on the podcast home page.
