08jamesbeard.jpg For the second year in a row has been named as a finalist for the prestigious James Beard Foundation Award. To put it in perspective, this is kind of like finding out the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences likes your “little” movie. We have been selected this year in the category of Video and Webcasting for our short documentary: Stewards of the Land.

The credit for recognition such as this belongs to my partners in the enterprise: Brian, Jay and Eric who do the day to day heavy lifting that makes GrapeRadio what it is.

    Bottom line, if not for Michael prodding, helping, offering advice, spreading the word, GrapeRadio would NEVER have existed.

    I would also add that Mark Ryan, the artist behind the camera, was a key player. He is so talented, it’s scary.

    Lastly, for those of you that think this level of production is beyond your reach, I say strongly THINK AGAIN. Laugh all you want, but I say without any reservation that our biggest limitations are the ones we place on ourselves. Your passion and dedication will take you farther than you could ever imagine.

    I think we have proved this point. All Michael had was an idea and a vision, look what happened as a result.

    p.s. Drink more wine. :-0
