Oliver Gannon (Peter Gannon's brother), was appointed to the Order of Canada in recognition for "his achievements as a musician" on December 29, 2017!

Oliver recently sat for an interview with CBC's Hot Air host Margaret Gallagher - read a summary and listen to the interview at
http://www.cbc.ca/beta/news/canada/british-columbia/oliver-gannon-hot-air-1.4571326

'I don't know ... why they chose me. But I'm very glad and I'm not giving it back,'
-Oliver Gannon

To be clear, and avoid any confusion, there are two brothers: Peter Gannon is the "Band-in-a-Box" PG Music guy, and Oliver Gannon is the jazz guitarist who just won the Order of Canada.

Update: The Audio can only be streamed if you're in Canada.

Edit Reason: CBC limits streaming to Canadian IP only.

I tried to listen to this interview, but it said "Not available in your area."

Do you guys not like us anymore?

Yikes! Well, CBC is Canadian - but I wasn't aware of the listening restrictions. I've updated my original post.

We still like you!

Ah an interesting read, Since Oliver was 14 when his family left Ireland here for Canada, and Peter is no doubt the younger brother, the thought crossed my mind if he has any recollection himself of the "Auld Country"

What a great family!

Well, this was a great interview, but I have to say, my favorite of all time will be:

"Yeah, but my Brother in Law Peter Gannon who married my other sister Kathy made a killing doing house calls, then he started his own company and made this thing called Band in a Box, and a salesman talked me into getting this monster computer with a 5 and a quarter inch floppy so I could put my coffee on it. Sales people are really beautiful that way, how they can spin everything around."

I don't understand why he didn't get the Canadian You Tube Comedy lifetime achievement award.

It's almost as unfair as me not being able to watch the CBC interview here in America.

Save Notation Window as a Video with Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac

Did you know... Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac allows you to save the Notation Window as a video? What a great way to share your songs with users, and LEARN from the notation as you listen!

From the program manual:
[Save As] | Save as video
-In the Make Notation Video dialog, select a track at the upper left corner. (Note: The dialog title says “Make Chord Sheet Video” until you select a track.)
-You can also set the dimension (width/height) of the video and select the number of frames per second and a specific codec.
-Press the [OK - Render Video] button to start rendering the video. When the video has been created, press the [Show Video File] button.
-You can then double click on the file to watch the rendered video.

Note: A special use of this feature is to combine a Video RealTracks (new with version 2018) with the corresponding notation in a single video. This creates an educational video, which shows the actual performance with notation/tab, playing over your chord progression! To do this, right-click on the Master button or one of the track buttons at the top of the main screen and select Render Video(s) from the menu.
