Welcome home everyone! Join us for our last episode of 2020! This week’s episode is all about our year in review-make sure to come back next week for our 2021 goals!
Dog of the Week
Nicknames: Schmoop, my Bubala, little man
Likes: cucumbers, his man cave under the bed, howling with his sister Daisy
Dislikes: when his mom isn’t home
Cooper is definitely the needy one. Mom is his primary and he hates when she isn’t home, sitting by the front door waiting until she returns. But once she’s home he’s just out for attention from whomever he can get it from. Guests are always treated to his high energy brand of flirting. Fun fact: he is puppy buddies with Fritzie!” – Cooper’s mom, Jenn
Charity of the Week:

- We provide startup funding/sponsorships to music related events and organizations.
- We promote Iowa music on our blog, in our newsletter, and through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram by sharing news, upcoming shows, music, videos, reviews, and more.
