To our Loyal Record Labels-AT LAST!!!The newest edition of Smokestack Lightnin'(#0323) is now
available at Click on our logo and you will go directly to
our music page. A Synopsis of the newest show and a detailed playlist are
included in this e-mail. We have been temporarily off the air for a while as we spent a great
deal of time and money working out a format and structure of our show that satisfied the RIAA
and the Yahoo legal department. It wasn't easy, but we finally got it done. Then inexplicably,
Yahoo would not or could not resume airing our show, so we just threw caution to the wind and
acquired the technology to do the show ourselves. It was time consuming and expensive, but we
have learned a lot. We are now producing new shows and will refresh every other week from now on.
We posted an old show last week and got about 700 hits, so we believe we can rebuild an audience
very quickly. The last few weeks we were on Yahoo we had about 5000 hits a week.
Thanks so much for your patience. We certainly hope you will continue to support our efforts.
