Recording Labels in Pgh

Careful readers of today's Post-Gazette and Pittsblog may have expected me to praise this piece about Pittsburgh's future by Citizens Bank Chairman Larry Fish: more immigrants needed; a more upbeat community attitude needed; more involvement by the Allegheny Conference needed. Well, as the man once sang, two out of three ain't bad.

No, instead I want to praise local recording company Digital Dynamics Audio, the baby of Duquesne University faculty Tom Kikta and Francisco Rodriguez. As the P-G reported this morning, DDAI recently picked up local label Alanna Records and hopes to grow its jazz and classical catalogue.

This is a brutal business and these are brutal times. The folks deserve kudos for their courage. Small business. Entrepreneurship. Culture. Pittsburgh can use more of this combination. Now go buy a CD.
