It's come to my attention that John Dudeck has taken ill. For those that don't know, John was the founder/owner of Very Distro. I remember buying a 7" in the mid 90s, and their was a small xerox ad for Very Distro inside of it. After sending an SASE (if you don't know what that is, you're not old enough) to get a catalog, I made dozens upon dozens of orders from Very over the years, and spent an untold thousands of dollars. In those early days, I would often get a written note from John along with my order, and he was always a very friendly guy. Simply by starting Very, I know he's had an impact on many people's lives. There's currently a website up that details his illness, and there's even a guestbook where you can leave him your thoughts while he's in the hospital. Please go take a look and drop a line: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/johndudeck

Thank you John for all the amazing music you turned me on to 20 years ago before there was an internet, facebook and even email. Your record distro linked together a scene across continents.

Great guy.
