Lindy E-Mail Networks
Lindy E-Mail Networks
Hi Lindy Hoppers!!!
You can get mail from zillions of Lindy Hoppers!

You are visitor to since April 1, 1997.

There are probably those of you out there who don't get enough e-mails from us. So, here is a list, provided by Rich McComas, of other Lindy- related networks that you can subscribe to. Many of these networks have a separate address for subscribing and another for publishing, or sending stuff in to be read by others. Almost all of the networks are affiliated with an online website. "Announce Only" means that they send things out but don't receive material for publication. None of these offers online "chat", however.

When you write a "nice letter" to subscribe, tell the folks how you found them.

And, of course we also have our own e-mail network here at Lindy Week in Review. We send out mailings three times a week.

  • Monday: The Upcoming Week is mailed with news of Lindy events in the DC/Baltimore area
  • Thursday: The Dance Forum is mailed with articles by and about Lindy Hoppers
  • Friday: The Dance Reviews are mailed, bringing you up to date on what has happened during the past week.

Everything that is in the e-mails goes up on the website on Sunday night. However, due to the restricted size of e-mails, not everything that is on the site goes out in the broadcasts. We do this as a service to the folks who can receive e-mail but who cannot access the internet. Our list is confidential and we have no advertising. All you have to do to get on it is send a "nice e-mail" to jitterbuzz. Send stuff that you want to publish to the same address. Generally, we publish everything that gets sent in, although we are not particularly interested in religious, political or sexually explicit materials.
