Dear friends,
The following worrying email has come in from Linda, moderator of the 
Jelly Roll Morton list.
It seems that the magnificent Red Hot Jazz Archive site is also under 
threat from the proposed legislation aimed at the 'little' US internet 
radio stations by big business and may be forced to close (after 11 
years) on 15 July 2007.
It looks as though we 'outsiders' may be penalised after all.
Kind regards,
Bill. Who doesn't really understand it all.
