BasicGrey Page of the Month 2011


DEC 31st: I have been in discussions with BasicGrey staff this week, and they have not yet finalized the details about this upcoming year's POTM program.

As we would not want to give you any information prematurely, we have not released any details about the upcoming year, as Basic Grey has not yet released any information.

If you are interested in being on our list for the upcoming year's POTM program, please let us know. Those who get their names into us will get the first chance! IF you would like to know about this past year's program, you can see what it included from our past post on Jan 25, 2010
(just click on the date which has a link to the post).

This past year was a great success, and it will be interesting to see if there are any changes to the 2011 program. I can't wait to get the FREE album in Feb from this past year's program!
Hope you will join us for another successful year!
