      Actually, at some point, I want to do a feature on Bruce’s fab site here – seriously, folks: you would NOT believe what Bruce Brown has done with the Fix It In The Mix blog – it will STUN many and I list it near the top of the above list for good, intentional reason. http://fixitinthemix.blogspot.com/

    I can’t believe you left off my live365 power pop internet radio site: Power Pop Guitars CFSB. I have been number one in the Power Pop genre for over a year…

    • dudeman says:

      An simple oversight there, Thom – my apologies. This is not a full time gig, so imagine all that went into this and technical stuff and details – there were a lot of moving parts Also, never knew about it. I’ve not heard from you in a long time and I”ve been out of the loop w/ following some of the new happenings w/ Podcast shows b/c I’ve been working on this and other projects. …..I’ll get that added up there in just bit and find the link…again, sorry about that but just didn’t know….

  4. J Richter says:

    Thanks for the nod to my site, Robots For Ronnie. I’ve been rather slow at it lately but will be getting back in the swing of things soon. All respect to you Bruce, for all you do in the name of power pop!

    • dudeman says:

      That’s great to hear – RFR has always been an outstanding resource for digging up amazing releases long lost……..

  5. thomas bickel says:

    Thanks for putting Burn and Shine on the blogroll– much appreciated. I’m really digging the site so far. Keep up the good work!

  8. Curt Vance says:

    Thanks for adding PPO. It is an honor!

  9. dwight arms says:

    It’s not power-pop specific, but I’d like to have more pop-geeks join me at Vinylsurrender.com to help boost the “better” music. Currently VS thinks Depeche Mode and the Cure are better than Big Star and The Raspberries. It’s a fun free site for voting on your favorite songs, albums and artists.

    • dudeman says:

      I’ll add the site to the list later today when I get into my office, as checking it all out! Thanks! 😀

    Bootlegzone forums http://www.bootlegzone.com/phpBB3/index.php – good site with Beatles topics dominating there.

    Now that we are heading into the Xmas season maybe you should check out some blogspots for some cool Xmas music. I highly recommend:Christmas a Go Go! if you want some eclectic xmas tunes to add to your xmas music mixes……….

  14. J Richter says:

    I’d love a linkback for my new power pop forum, Forty Watt Solution. I’ve linked PGH there. There’s a terrible shortage of message boards specifically dedicated to the genre. I’m hoping this will grow into something special. Keep flying the power pop flag, Bruce! 🙂

  15. franco ameriso says:

    it’s really incredible!

  16. Marlene Lipson says:

    Pretty wonderful list! Under the Retail heading I think you should add Futureman Records http://www.futuremanrecords.bandcamp.com. Great music there, some paid, some free.

  17. dudeman says:
