Twenty years ago today, The ElectroLounge began to play . . . 

I don't know where this site will go hereon, as I didn't know then. I still ramble in these notebooks for the fun/etc. of it.

I have been doing The Cenacle now for twenty-three years, am currently working on its ninetieth issue. It still fascinates & moves me to good work.

So, I don't know. My experiment continues with this site. It still makes all the difference in the world. Perhaps this short entry the beginning of looking back at te past 20 years of this project, commenting along the way . . .

My radio show as of today's broadcast is moving back to its original time, Saturdays 11am-2pm, one it occupied back in the old Radio Free Cambridge days, & at other stretches since . . . idea is to have early Saturday be devoted to its preparation, then broadcast, then spend the rest of the day with beloved KD, pens & notebooks & Polly iPod & movies, & the juicy fun of late night weirdo TV shows . . . so it's begun, hope it works well . . . Cenacle 103 is in the post-JG final proofing stage, soon to print & distribute, even going down to CT to old haunts for a few days next week to get the proofing done quick . . . so here goes a new / old variation on the beloved Saturday plan . . . like when I used to have 8 great hours free on Saturday from family ties, so long ago, & all the variations since on that same freedom . . .

Working on Cenacles 103 & 104 on & on. . . radio show page is updated & radio show ready to roll in 33 minutes . . . doing show on Saturday mornings has made it so the rest of the day is for writing, movies, KD, juicy fun till late . . . I think this was a good move to make . . .
