- Thanks for the Compliment! - "I just wanted to thank you for providing me with the opportunity to have a session with Fred Knobloch via the SONGU$30 offer. It was absolutely delightful! Fred is so generous (we were on the phone for two hours!), so friendly, and wise. He even told me to stay in touch and let him know when I have something new! I feel as though I have a new friend in something that still (even though I've had only very slight success at it) means a lot to me. Thank you very much!" Pete Papageorge, Special Event Participant (Washington, DC, Member since 2009).
- More Kudos for J. Fred Knobloch! - "The [SONGU$30] session was great (all two hours of it) and Fred was the perfect person for me to meet with. He gave me some spot on suggestions for my writer's block issues. I'd seen his Bluebird shows a few times but hadn't ever met him until now. He's amazing and I'm glad you held a special event with him. I'm glad he liked my songs but I'm even gladder (ha!) that I got to meet him. Thanks again!" Claire Ulanoff, Special Event Participant (TN, Member since 2008).
