NAB update

From the NAB . . .

If you're looking for Media Services Group, we're at the Bellagio (suite # 32057). Suite traffic from prospective buyers and sellers is off; probably the lowest traffic in twenty years of NAB's.

On the positive side, great dinner at Ferraro's (West Flamingo) Saturday night.

Attended the Garvey Schubert Barer breakfast this morning. Thanks to Erwin Krasnow for the hospitality. It was well attended. Ivan Braiker spoke about Hip Cricket (texting).

Banks are scarce. Not sure that any of them are doing any new lending. Some job casualties in the media lending ranks. Bad.

Attended the opening reception. David Rehr spoke about Radio 2020 and Radio Heard Here; discussed the digtal TV transition and mobile TV.

Interesting time for the business. Radio is being re-set.
