Received an Award of Excellence at the 2004 Best of the Northwest Video Festival for producing "The Small Stage" music television program.
"Rob Hursh you rock, your online store rocks, your website rocks, your myspace rocks, your YouTube rocks, your camera and editing skills totally rock, and the content of the films rocks, and if I were a bigshot I would find a way to employ you, any way I could. I could go on, your trouble shooting skills rock, your dedication to your work rocks, your roster, catalog, library, whatever, it is like local-national treasure, thanks for everything you constantly do to bring film and music and great artists to the freaking world!"
"A 1000 thank yous for uploading the GBCK and SuperChamps! video clips. The fact that you recorded to video all of these moments of my (our) musical existence means the world to me. As you say, "It is what it is", and is certainly invaluable memorabilia. And thanks for reminding me that I've gotten fat... I'll get you for this, Robsterboy *shakes fist* ;-) "
"Thanks a million for archiving this music material. You must make many people happy such as
"You are an absolute doll."
"You're super fantastic!"
"If you were a car you'd be a Rolls Royce!"
"Plane crashes, black eyes... Rob, I think you might be a wild man."
"Thank you for posting The Purdins on You Tube. Killer!"
"What a great show you were doing. Hope all the creative stuff is still flowing for you."
"Good to see you too - thanks for the links. Seeing you brought up a lot of good memories - you always treated me and my bands with love, class and respect. Hope to see you again soon."
"First of all, thanks for doing what you do. I've seen 29 Live a few times on public access, but didn't know too much about Whalebonepro.com. When I saw your mission statement, it really resonated with what we are doing."
"Hi Rob, I'm watching the Delusions 29 Live episode right now. It's very early, 1996-- perhaps it was their first gig-- and it's interesting for several reasons. No one watching that night could ever have known that this band would go on to perform for hundreds of thousands of people on those Built to Spill tours. Still I'm amazed that even at that early date, they knew what they wanted to do. They refined it a lot over the next five years, but they had the basic sound already set up. Fun stuff."
"I was over at my sister's place for Easter and got to see both of the videos that you sent me. They were great. You and your crew do an expert job at camera work and mixing. Good luck, you're on the verge of something big."
"I think your show is important. You are compiling a visual record of a generation performers at the peak of their
craft. Slowly, but surely, you are building up a library which is important in the present as solid entertainment and which will always be important as a historical record. Nobody else is doing that, and the musicians around here are starting to figure it out."
