"A new way, a new day...

...and new eyes to see the dawn". So goes the Stephen Stills classic...and it introduces my current state about this blog.

A new season in Ahmet's House brings a new dedication...a new perspective. Our world is sometimes so caught up in "new" that the word takes on a negative connotation. How do we grow, while still retaining the connection to the old, to the past. Our recent trip to Europe caused me to reflect on how America so easily disrespects the past...how we constantly dig it up and rebuild on the graves of our ancestors.

Here in Ahmet's House, the goal is to live in the now...and yet never disconnect with the past. Ahmet and the greats of Atlantic lived for yesterday, today and tomorrow...as the needs of the business clamored for newness, invention, discovery. But the roots held firm...roots of passion, quality, dedication...pain. Sorrow. Overwhelming joy.

This week we start a new season, and a new journey...building and reshaping...hope you come along for the ride. This has begun. It's not happening later...it's happening now! Ahmet's House.

Coming Home! A New Season of Ahmet's House to begin June 23rd!

Hello fellow adventurers of good music...Tony and some of the crew at WBKM have just returned from an eight day trek through Europe to help chronicle and enjoy the first four shows from Neil Young and Crazy Horse! Ahmet indeed would be proud, as the band played with a gusto and bravado fitting men half their age. So a little bit of Ahmet was felt and heard of during the days of walks and train rides and airports...from Berlin to the elegant City of Paris...from young and old alike.

Tony needs to catch up on some rest...of which there was none while away...and is working on new ideas for a return on Sunday, June 23rd with the first show of Season Six...all the more inspired and certain that this great House must grow and prosper.

 
Last Saturday evening in Paris...Tony...tired and glad to be heading home!
