Always sad when we have to report the passing of one of our own.
(from an MMR email)...
It is with a profound sense of sadness that we report the passing of our dear friend and associate, Don Johnson. Don served as editor of MUSICAL MERCHANDISE REVIEW for the past twenty five years and under his stewardship the publication developed a broad international readership. He was a quiet professional who had an intuitive gift of delivering an interview in a clear and concise manner. Over the years he gained the respect and developed friendships within the entire spectrum of the music industry.

Much of the support of Piano World and the Piano Forums comes from professionals in the piano business who pay to advertise with us (smart move on their part :-).
To date we have focused primarily on the U.S. market, but by it's very nature the Internet is international.
Although we have barely touched on offering advertising to Canada and the U.K., that will change going forward.
As you can see by this post Who Visits Piano World?, a significant amount of our traffic originates in Canada, U.K., and Australia.
I believe we can help professionals in these regions attract more business too.
The challenge will be in how we break down the ads geographically. It's pretty easy here in the States, we break it down by State and area within a state.
If anyone from the other countries mentioned would like to give me some ideas, I'd be grateful (firstname.lastname@example.org

I received an email with what is purported to be a review of Grand Obsession, in Chinese.
Of course I can't read it, so I am just presuming that is what it is.
If any of our members can read Chinese, but speak/type English, I'd appreciate you taking a look and let me know the gist of what it says.
