I was wrong by not restricting my statement to "every U.S. 78". This
was the stated goal of the AVRL (aka AND), and as I understand it, the goal
was almost accomplished before the 1993-2006 project was abandoned? What I
can't find is, what happened to the massive amount of information
accumulated in the AVRL? Is it accessible anywhere by anyone?
My name and E-Mail address are always in the "From:" field. As of
now, I will no longer include my signature in messages posted to any
mailing list. Most people seem to be incapable of cutting out unnecessary
or unreferenced text in their replies. I really appreciate all the very
helpful responses, but for just this "Chicago's Oriole Records" posting I
made, seven copies of my signature were posted back to the List! How many
copies of this complete 7 or 8 line paragraph will get reposted to the List
as part of responses about the AVRL? Hopefully, none.
