Hi all,

I'm a reporter from Columbia News Service (at Columbia University) and am doing stories in/about East Harlem. The forum has been a nice way for me to hear about some of the goings-on.

I'd love to learn more about TNT and Johnny Colon and others that have been mentioned here--sounds like a great story, and maybe one people outside of the community haven't heard much about, especially the younger folks. Johnny Colon is still around, right? Are any other musicians from before? What happened to them? Does East Harlem have a tradition of neighborhood bands? Is the idea of neighborhood bands still strong?

I'm a radio reporter, so anything that involves music makes my job easier! Thanks.

(P.S. Feel free to let me know about other things going on too--I'm open to just about everything.)

Gary Chandler
