April 9, 1860 is the date of the earliest recording of a human voice ever recovered, singing the French folk tune, "Clare De La Lune" (By the Light of the Moon). It was recorded by Edouard-Leon Scott de Martinville and was deposited in 1861 with the Academie of Sciences.
One day a year, on April 9, we encourage fans and music lovers in general, to tip their hats off to music creators. "Take them to lunch," buy your favourite songwriter's new album, tickets to their concerts, show them your love and respect.

We have placed music with major TV/film and record companies such as Disney, NBC, ABC, MTV, VH1, Global, Warner Brothers, RCA, etc.
