MARVELOUS OR MALEVOLENT MERMAIDS?
Where can I get the April 2014 issue with the mermaid on the cover? I can't wait to buy it. I'm a No. 1 fan of mermaids, as I have a self-made tail too! Thanks so much for the beautiful magazine!

(Charles Boles) was a great inspiration and mainstay of mine while running Baker's Keyboard Lounge. (“Overdue Debut,” April 2014) His legacy at Baker's is monumental! It was certainly a honor and a pleasure having him play for me at Baker's and gain a wealth of knowledge about the business from his friendship.
