Mr Max’s Message: Nov 08

MR. MAX’S MESSAGE – November 2008 STORY TIME This is a new thing I’m doing with this section. Besides the regular promotion of the show I play, I’m going to share with you a short story from what I call The Book. The Book has about 30 stories of real experiences from my life. Some of the short stories would be pretty embarrassing for the people that they’re about. So I’ll have to stick with the publishable ones. The story … Read More >>
