FROM THE PUBLISHERDear Reader,Since our first day almost 18 years ago, it has been our goal to providea rich, comprehensive picture of the live musical scene in SouthernOntario. Over that time, we’ve published listings for some 75,000 livelocal events -- adding up to an extraordinary chronicle of communitymusical life.Over three million copies of The WholeNote have circulated, free ofcharge, since we first began. What many of our readers may not realizeis that all events are also listed free of charge, regardless of whetheror not a presenter buys advertising.More people than ever now count on The WholeNote. The WholeNote is whereyou turn to get the information you need. And now we are turning to you,our most loyal readers.The WholeNote has helped to make the grassroots musical life of Torontoand Southern Ontario more open, accessible and visible. Not only have wegathered the information, we have put it directly into your hands sothat you can know as much as possible about the music you want to hear.We are asking you to be one of 3,000 readers we hope will step forwardby midnight, May 15, the production deadline for our summer issue, tomake a gift in order to keep listings and circulation at The WholeNotealive and free.Like all publications today, we are facing the challenges of a rapidlychanging media landscape. The live music scene has burgeoned, audienceshave grown and, thanks to our loyal advertising base, we have neverneeded to ask you for help. Our advertisers now bear a disproportionateshare of the cost of keeping The WholeNote in circulation. We cannotcontinue that way.We need your help. If you read The Wholenote for free, we are asking youto please chip in. Think of it as an act of solidarity with like-mindedreaders. Take a stand for The WholeNote.Thank you for helping us to continue telling the whole story, not justthe money story.David PerlmanPLEASE CONTRIBUTE what you can by visiting you prefer not to use the internet, you can send a cheque toWholeNote Media Inc by Canada Post.
