Interviews — Austinnitus interviewed some two
dozen local creative musicians and printed one in each issue. These interviews
be printed on paper or posted online sometime in the future should there ever be any interest in doing this.
Goodbye - these musicians used to live in Austin/Texas,
but now live elsewhere. We miss all of your contributions and want you back!
