To The Editor:
I have no idea what the hell’s going on with the Nicholson I Drive album (reviewed WGO # 28). I am the sole writer of “County Town” and as for “Tears of Joy”, though originally written by me, it was re-written with only Rob Laidlaw as the second writer. I have no problem with artists wanting to promote themselves as writers but when it comes to falsely taking credit for co-writing one of MY songs, well, you have to understand the anger.

Dear What’s Goin On,
Recently in Halifax, I discovered your fine magazine in the Cape Breton Tea Room, picking up the four issues they had: January, March, July, and August 1998. Enclosed please find my cheque for $35.00 for a subscription. (I was not sure of your tax so I’m guessing). Please begin with the issue following August 1998. If your offer of two free back issues still holds, I should like copies of Nos. 2 (July ’95) and 7 (December ’95). Would it be possible to purchase a complete run of your back issues (excepting the “sold out” ones) from the beginning to the end of 1997? I must say I am very impressed with your magazine, and wish some of the publications around Toronto were as good.
To: The Editor
Now that “What’s Goin On” is into its third year of publishing would it please be possible to instruct your contributors to never again use the phrases “legendary”; “much anticipated” or any sentence in which any form of the verb “to blow” is paired with the word “away”? English is such a versatile, colourful language and dictionaries are cheap.
Regards, Dave Harley
I just wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoy your magazine. Is there any way I could order the magazine and how much would they cost.
