Cool! They certainly seem to have an advertiser base to be able to sustain it.

Did not know Jake's next CD is being produced by Alan Parsons til I saw it there.

Jake is in the studio with Alan Parsons, engineer of the Beatles’ ‘Abbey Road’ and Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon,’ working on an album that will not only take him to the next level, but will redefine the ukulele itself. On October 2nd, Jake’s most ambitious record to date, entitled ‘More Ukulele,’ will catapult his career even further.The release will be followed by a 30+ date US tour.

Pretty cool! Too bad it's about 75% ads, which make the "reviews" a little less meaningful. :(

Not sure if this has been posted yet but Acoustic Guitar Magazine seems to be launching a new Uke magazine and have posted the first issue on-line for free. www.acousticguitar.com/ukemagazine

Have just skimmed it, but it looks great.

Enjoy.

Fantastic! I always wondered if any publications dedicated to ukuleles existed, but I admit I never actively searched for any either beyond passing glances at magazine/advertisement racks at instrument stores. Magazines are just another way to feed interest, stay current, learn something new and pass the time while at work and unable to practice! :)
Greatly appreciate the link, and especially the link to the pdf.

The folks at Acoustic Guitar recently put out a survey for ukulele players: http://4.selectsurvey.net/acousticguitar/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=n4M0m55

There's a giveaway for a Martin tenor at the end of it, too!
