Point taken Becky - wrist suitable slapped.

Hi Hoot, still admittedly not a full blown magazine but it has progressed by leaps and bounds over the last few years and the only thinng that stops us considering the extra jump to a 'saleable magazine' is that we're all volunteers and the necessary extra time involved in doing it is just not practical.

We do reviews - in fact they are largely from the US but that's where the main source of cds (and books) come from. There are research articles - admittedly limited by space restrictions so don't expect a 10 page scholarly dissertation but we do try and we do have some knowledgeable members. "Happenings" tend to be mainly UK based but there are also articles on US festivals etc. Content varies by issue depending on what is available to the editors (not me although I often contribute).

If anyone is anxious to see how we have progressed I can get a link set up to a pdf of a recent issue. It may take me a couple of days to get that done so you may wish to add a trace.

I'm aware that there's many (UK) folks out there playing old time and that many don't know about us. There's also quite a few that DO know about us and for whatever reason prefer to ignore us. Only too happy to take on board any suggestions for bringing them to the fold by to mix metaphors, 'you can't take a horse to water etc.'

Still we seem to have hijacked the thread about Tom (although as I said he is the FOAOTMAD President). At least it keeps the thread active!
