Programming Note


Based on the Gentle Readers’ responses to the poll at the end of Monday’s Yours Truly, Johnny Atsign episode, the Lickspittle Broadcasting System crew will be taking a break for most of the rest of the summer. Blogsmoke, Blognet, and YTJA should back after Labor Day, and if something special happens, there’ll be a special program.

Blognet will not air this evening. Also, Johnny won’t be back from his overseas trip on Monday (he did say that Nile perch put up quite a fight), but Blogsmoke will return next Friday.
