Al Martino CD offer

Dear Al Fans,

Please see the message I received from Al's Writer/Producer Joe Vulpis. Joe has put a lot of effort into this project to make Al's final recordings available to all of his fans. He has now taken on another task and will be doing the initial distribution.

Joe's Message:
By overwhelming demand it is a pleasure to announce that we will
start taking orders for the new, full Al Martino 10 song "Thank
You" CD.

Cd's will be sold directly to avoid paying a distributor.
We will be taking orders via Check/Money order.
Cd's are ready to ship now. Please allow 2-4
weeks for delivery.

MARKED: " POWERMAT"

CONCEPT: THIS NEW HIGH TECH WIRELESS CHARGING DEVICE IS A MAT THAT ALLOWS YOU TO
PUT ANY OF YOUR ELECTRONIC DEVICES ON IT (PHONE, IPOD, ETC...) TO RECHARGE. IN
THIS COMEDY CAMPAIGN, WE WILL SEE A VARIETY OF PEOPLE IN DIFFERENT SCENARIOS
BASICALLY SAYING "WHAT THE F&*%?!" WITH THEIR EXPLETIVE BEING BLEEPED OUT AT
THEIR AMAZEMENT OF HOW COOL THIS NEW DEVICE IS, WHICH GIVES OFF A BLEEP SOUND
ITSELF WHILE CHARGING... 1/2 of the roles are for Americans, and the others are
for "Foreigners" as listed below.
[ ITALIAN SPEAKING BUSINESS TRAVELER ]
30-50 year old ITALIAN SPEAKING Male. Handsome AND suave! Must speak FLUENT
Italian (with Italian as his first language or be 100% bi-lingual)as this role
is IN ITALIAN (NOT English). However, there are only a couple of lines, so if
someone speaks Italian with a PERFECT Italian accent, that's fine too. Should be
the upscale type you would see in the business class lounge at an airport. All
roles are speaking roles, so we are seeking seasoned actors with some dry
comedic ability, yet who are very natural on camera.
