Howdy there!  This here is Bum Wagler and I'm writin' to ask for your help. That's right; you!  Now most of you  know by now that Ol' Bum writes some of the finest Country songs around.  But so far his recordings of these songs have been, well, kinda sketchy to say the least.  That's 'cuz Ol Bum's been using cheesy recording equipment in a spare room of his house, and though he tries real hard, he doesn't really know the first thing about recordin' techniques. 

Well now all that's about to change, 'cuz Ol' Bum has just recently finished up a week at the famous TikiTown Studio in Marin County, north of San Francisco, under the production guidance of the great Scott Mathews. Now this young man knows EVERYTHING about makin' records, and has produced numerous gold and platinum records, and a couple of Grammys and Oscars to boot!

He has worked with such greats as (and this is just a partial list)  Glen Campbell, Elvis Costello, Ry Cooder, Taj Mahal, Roy Orbison, Bonnie Raitt, Boz Scaggs, Dwight Yoakam, Neil Young and Johnny Cash!  On top of all that,  he's a musician and songwriter, AND  a heck of a nice guy.  Well, the results are everything I was hopin' for and more, and I now am the proud owner of a ten song master just itchin' to get itself out there in a CD.

So we'll be hirin' a professional graphic designer and puttin' together one of them 6 panel eco-wallets, (cuz ol' Bum hates them jewel cases too!) and it's gonna be packed full of photos, liner notes, song lyrics and other cool things as well as the CD!  And all y'all can be part of it!  Please join in, Ol' Bum will be mighty grateful.  There's a whole passel o' rewards for every level!

Yahoo! and Thank you kindly!

Risks and challenges

Now y'all probably already know that if a Kickstarter campaign doesn't get fully pledged, no one has to pay nuthin'! So that's not a worry. We're already gettin' started on the artwork part of this deal and will be swingin' into high gear on that in the 30 days this campaign will be open. There's always a remote possibility of some kind of disaster, natural or manmade, that could cause a delay, but chances of that are slim. If somethin' like that does occur, Ol' Bum will do everything in his power to fulfill the rewards as soon as humanly possible, you have my personal promise on that!
