Back On Track

When did you throw out all your 8-track tapes? Mid eighties, right? I remember the day. I’d already switched to cassette and was contemplating a move to CD. A lot of my 8-tracks had bitten the dust anyway, victims of deformed rollers, tangled tape, or being left too long in my truck under the hot Texas sun. And I didn’t even have a working player anymore. With considerable pride in my ability to kiss the past goodbye and embrace the future, I tossed my last five or six dozen 8-tracks into a box and threw them out along with my ankh necklace and my last pair of Levi’s Big Bells…

A quick word about Brent Butterworth:

Mr. Butterworth has been writing and editing articles about audio and video since 1989. In addition to serving as editor-in-chief of Home Theater, he has done extensive work for magazines such as Sound + Vision, Robb Report, and Home Entertainment. I know myself as an avid fan of Home Theater magazine that Brent’s articles alone were worth the cover price. You can find more examples of his work at www.brentbutterworth.com.

The following article is truly a gem, worthy of being resurrected and I hope that you have as much fun reading it as Brent and the other great writers had creating it.

Over the past few years, Innovative Audio has been proud to support the outstanding efforts of the Delta Community Animal Shelter by donating 5% of our total audio sales during the month of December. This year, our record department has also decided to hop on board and they will also be donating 5% of total record sales!  WE ARE HOPING TO TOP LAST YEAR’S DONATION CONTRIBUTION and with your help we know we can!

In addition, we want to take things a bit further by hosting our very first ‘Animal Drive’. In essence, we are asking people to look around their homes for good clean towels, blankets, sheets, hand towels or anything else related and drop them off at our shop so we can pass it along to the DCAS. These items can be new or used, as long as they are clean.

Also, we are also looking for food, toys, used cat trees or anything else to make these animals comfortable.

For your efforts, items brought in that support this cause will be put into a draw for a $250.00 Gift Certificate to be used in our store. Just fill out the ballot with your name and phone number when you drop off your donation and we’ll draw a winning entry on December 22nd – our last day open for 2018.

Even if you do not or cannot provide items listed above, just putting a dollar or two or any amount you choose into the fund will also make you eligible for the Gift Certificate.

If you are looking to open your doors this year for an addition to your family, adopting one of these incredible furry, lovable critters would be awesome.  DCAS has been tirelessly providing care, love and attention to animals and we wholeheartedly support their efforts.  

This year, lets spread the love of music to support the ones that need love the most, the animals.

Thank you, from all of us at Innovative Audio.
