This is the first year I’ve been responsible for the music poll, and here is a two-item list of the mistakes I made. (But don’t worry, cutNscratch followers, it’s all going to be fine.)
1. About the concerts: After this story went to press yesterday, we decided to make the shows happen on Jan. 9 and Jan. 10.
The paper says the shows are on Jan. 10.
Instead, we’re giving you two nights of local music in very cool settings. And those settings are Kirk Avenue Music Hall on the 9th, and Jefferson Center’s Recital Hall on the 10th.
2. About the printed ballots: Today’s Extra section has two different deadlines. D’Oh! There is only one deadline — Dec. 22. So get those paper ballots ready and send them in asap.
Here is the correction scheduled to run in tomorrow’s paper: The Roanoke Times Music Poll concerts, featuring winners in the favorite local band category, will be Jan. 9 (at Kirk Avenue Music Hall, Roanoke) and Jan. 10 (at Jefferson Center Recital Hall). That information was incomplete in Friday’s Extra section. Also, the deadline for ballots is Dec. 22. There was conflicting date information in the article.
p.s. I’ll try to do better next year.
