TV biography for newcomers to the front site
« on: June 20, 2004, 11:13:51 AM »
A person I am in touch with vial e-mail for a few years, who is not a TV Smith fan, has visited the site and wrote me that it's difficult for a "newcomer" to the site to find out who exactly TV Smith is and what he does. I think we've discussed this before.  
:idea:
Couldn't the webmaster include something on the front page for newcomers, something like "Who is TV Smith?", i.e. a very short biography for curious visitors :?:

Thanks TJ, like I said I think we discussed this some time ago already, hopefully this time round it will happen. Anyone up for writing a short bio thingy :?:

Yeh thats true Uli ...  its OK for people who TV's music e t c ..so a short
bit about the man himself would be ace for any newcommers .

BUT saying that ..it is all there if they look hard enough eh ?  I mean its obvious TV is a musician , and id say the rest kinda falls into place as you read the diarys , and info in the site .

still it might be a good idea to do a little bio on the main page .
Bloody hell !

Uli


Are you in agreement with this Klaus and TV :?:

If so, and there are no other takers, I'll go for it as I'm having to do a lot of this type of stuff for First Light Coaching.

I'd also like to include a few of the powerful and punchy one liners TV has received from the press. These the same ones I wrote on TV posters advertising the Leeds New Roscoe gig I arranged a few years ago. Plus a few positive press words on Not A Bad Day.

How many words do you want me to limit it to :?:  

Alan, if I do end up doing it, can you edit it for me so that we can market TV in the best way :?:

Glad to hear you're up for it, TJ :!:  :D
Good idea to include press quotes.

Yeah, Jock I also told this person that all the info you need can be found if you're looking through the archives etc., but that's a bit of an effort for someone who's new to the site and just wants to take a quick look...

Also I told the person if she really has any questions on TV she could of course send them to me and I might answer them, but then I heard nothing about it anymore...  :lol:

TV Smith was born in a stable in Bethlehem. The parents of children called Gaye, Howard and Laurie had also been led there by a strange spotlight beaming down from above...

Always happy to play the teacher and edit!

This biography could also be useful in promotion with radio stations et al..

Some time ago I asked TV for a biography to add to the site.
He did send me what I was looking for, but I haven't put it up, so far.
I'll put it on the very top of my todo list.
Probably TJ's version will be a bit more enthusiastic, though. :wink:

That's great Klaus. :D

I've a brilliant idea Klaus. Why don't I add a bit to TV's without taking away any of his own wise words?

We really need to get a few NABD review quotes and some of these one liner gems in (with thier sources) :arrow:


"Righteous Anger - Infectious Tunes"
"Acoustic Protest Punk"
"An Unexpected Tour De Force"
"Rich in Invention - Dripping With Melody"
"TV Delivers The Goods - A Long Lost Hero"
"One Guitar - Punky Anthems - Powerful Voice"


What do you think TV and Klaus?

I quite agree, also it is not immediately obvious straight away that you should click Archives to visit the section about his music. Maybe if it was renamed to "Other" or something that would invite more people to click it and that way more people would read his discography etc.

Yeah, thought I should bring that to the attention of the forum.
