From the basic work done by AFO Records and At Last Publishing Co. in the early 1960′s, we will go back to research the period from 1950 through to 2000. We will not only expand the AFO Exhibit, but also uncover many of the treasures of the period that have gone unnoticed by history.
The decision to bring these components under the shelter of a non-profit 501 © (3) organization came about upon recognizing the tremendous importance of the work and the meager resources (money and people power) at my disposal. I needed to beg for both.
I have been very fortunate here at home to have had several…many people who have offered, and helped me in many ways at many levels. Some are helping me now. I hesitate to name them here for fear I may omit someone. Even so, as the project expands and the work becomes more intense, we need more people…people who love this city, its music, and its musicians.
Thank you for your time and attention.
Peace be with you,
