Take a peek at my new artists web site, and let me know what you think?

Here's a crazy idea: Do you have a photo of a favorite pet, dog, cat, etc. or favorite car, boat, thing, radio, house, or maybe vacation spot? Send it to me, and I'll create a piece of art work out of it. Post up on the artists site, and if you like it. You can order yourself a print, or pillow, tote bag, etc. And if you're really happy tell all your family and friends, that you commissioned an artist to create this for you. As for me, I'll post it with the phrase "Commission Work."

Just a crazy idea, what do you say? After reviewing my art gallery, you can see my technique and style. Let's go for it..

Now for the important stuff:  Thank, and thank you again for your generosity! We are almost there to cover the cost of the first server bill. Just a little more to go, and the cost will be covered.

Bob Bailey & Dick Powell

Hello MPIR Fans,
A quick note here, just finished up with uploading the radio files for the mystery stream. Now featuring the radio works of Bob Baily, and Dick Powell.

Bob Bailey (born Robert Bainter Bailey, June 13, 1913 in Toledo, Ohio – August 13, 1983) was an American radio actor. Starting in 1946, Bailey starred as freelance detective George Valentine in the radio drama Let George Do It. But he is best remembered as the title character in the long-running radio series Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar. The program ran from 1949 until 1962, and featured the exploits of "America's fabulous freelance insurance investigator"; Bailey starred as Johnny from 1955 through 1960 and wrote the script for the December 22, 1957 episode "The Carmen Kringle Matter" using the pen name "Robert Bainter".

Richard Ewing "Dick" Powell (November 14, 1904 – January 2, 1963) was an American singer, actor, film producer, film director and studio head. Though he came to stardom as a musical comedy performer, he showed versatility and successfully transformed into a hardboiled leading man starring in projects of a more dramatic nature. He was the first actor to portray the private detective Philip Marlowe on screen.
