THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF RALPH'S WORLD
A new note from Ralph about Time Machine Guitar!
I am so excited! As many of you know, we've been working for over a year on a television pilot called "Ralph's World: Time Machine Guitar" that we hope one day will be broadcast all over the country- even the world. Well, we're taking a big step towards that soon.
In just a short while WTTW/Channel 11, our local PBS station here in Chicago, will be airing our pilot. Here are the dates and times:
Friday, May 17, 2:30pm
Saturday, May 18, 9:00am
Sunday, May 19, 10:30am
Tuesday, May 21, 6:30am
Please let your friends know and we'd love to hear what you thought of it. You can send us an email or post a note on the Ralph's World Facebook page. We'll be making an invite shortly that you can share as well.
A revision to our previous note about our email newsletter. If you don't want to fill out all the address info, that's fine but providing a zip code will let us tailor certain messages just to your area but we actually haven't done that yet until we get enough zip codes from everyone.
Thanks for the support and love- and keep rockin'!
