DIY Music Blog #9 – All DIY *All* the Time?

Hey there guys and gals! Here’s the ninth (not tenth as originally thought!) DIY Music Blog. I’m sticking with the new format of thought of the day / my news / other news again as I think I can fine tune that into a decent blog style. Let me know if you agree or not.
