To Using The Site
The first stop is our "Welcome Page”. It is a bit like a magazine cover, it tells you who our “Guest of the Month” is and what album we are featuring in “CD of the Month”. It is also the area for accessing my brother’s webpage, “Matt Monro Jnr.” And the link to take you to our brand new “Web Store” We also have the "Matt on TV" section, with full listings of Matt's appearances on television worldwide? I wonder how many of you have downloaded the free screensaver, or clicked one of our sponsor buttons or subscribed to the EMI & Virgin "Newsletter". It also features news on our first Fan Club Meet, “Fans Reunited”. There is a wealth of information just on that first page and it also includes my e-mail details if anyone wants to contact me.
On the right of the home page is a lit of headers which take you to other areas. The first button takes you to our “News” page, which is updated on the first day of each month and features all the gossip. If you continue to scroll down after the news text, you will find access to a wealth of other areas.
