jgmSometime around early 2003, a group of friends came together and decided to take their personal interest and love of great music – and launch a blog. Just for fun. We called it Just Good Music. There were four of us at the core of the site.

John ParkerRobert Golladay, Dave Wilt – and of course – yours truly.

The blog ebbed and flowed, covering new music, old music, opinion, technology of music etc. After a while we left the company we were all working at – we crossed (if not changed) continents for our home base, married, divorced had babies – but the site lived on. Until last year.

The site had fallen to me to manage and run – and in turn I got busy. Very busy. So busy that I missed there months of alerts, reminders and emails from my ISP reminding me that I needed to renew my hosting package. One day I was chatting to a friend about something musically interesting – and I thought – I am sure we had that on Just Good Music – I went there – and ….. G O N E !

Eleven years of love – wiped out. My fault.

Fast forward – and I was recounting this sad story to the aforementioned Bob – who suggested that there would surely be a record of it in the way back machine. This week – I finally got around to looking and there it was. As the banner says – saved 55 times over the 11 years of it’s existence.

Just Good Music Lives here – and from time to time I will dive into that archive and pull up a post to repurpose it here. I have the first one already to go.
