Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:17pm Matt F:

When we did the Norton mini-tour of Canada, the CD that got the most spins in the van was Billy's homemade Fortune comp. That Earthquakes cut was on it.
Avatar 2:20pm Reeshard:

What other record company could suffer a warehouse flood, ask their customers to come and help clean the waterlogged vinyl…and have people actually turn up to help? This spoke worlds about the good will engendered by Billy and Miriam and their wonderful Norton label, as does the number of 'FMU tribute shows airing this week. Dave The Spazz's show was such a great thing, as is this episode of FP. I'm sorry you lost your friend, Rex, but you're certainly doing right by his memory and legacy.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:22pm lorenzoelsuave:

Super tribute Rex, thank you
Avatar 2:32pm Mailman Tom:

The Norton table at the WFMU record fair is where I spent most of my money.
  2:34pm Rino:

Awesome tribute! I agree the Mad Mike comps are the richest tapestries Norton has woven.

Thanks again Rex.
Avatar 7:09am Garageman:

Very nicely done Rex.
  5:02pm Bill S.:

Beautiful show, Rex.
That's why Billy was such a great guy...he'd just want everybody to remember him fondly and have a good time. What else is there to say?
