Recently I was contacted by the Poughkeepsie Journal for a story covering the impact of music used in TV commercials. The reporter, John Ferro, is interested in hearing from other individuals who have an emotional connection to any particular pieces of music. If you are interested in sharing your story with him, please refer to his message below.

This opportunity to contact Mr. Ferro is for one week only, ending on Wednesday, October 13th.

Thanks, Michelle.

To all:

A Gannett-owned daily newspaper in New York is preparing a report on original music -- and
some pre-recorded tunes by little-known recording artists -- used in television commercials.

Last year, the theme created for the Lowe's home improvement chain generated enough interest for the company to commission a longer version of the song for a CD release. Since then, some people have used the song in their weddings.

If you have stories about how this or other pieces of music in commercials have caught your fancy and/or affected your life, we'd like to hear from you. We are particularly interested in hearing from those of you who may live in the mid-Hudson Valley, particularly in Dutchess or Ulster counties.

Please e-mail John Ferro at (email address removed, deadline to contact expired) with your contact information and your story.
