True Vinyl has one spot left for an artist to launch this year. Tom believes in his pizza man, singer-writer-keyboard rock talent Ray, who is still bitter because his demo was discarded years ago. The alternative is classical violist Joshua Bell, a Grammy winner, whose contract expired. Lame busker Annette follows Tom around, insisting he should listen to her demo CD. Mike's street mugging complaint is ridiculed by the mates just because he isn't bruised black and blue, but he's terrified for himself and his expanding family. Tom helps out in Ray's late father's business, hoping to prove it can survive if Ray goes on tour. And thus meets a girl.
