I was very pleased to find that the sd-callers mailing list is being archived on egroups. I’m not quite sure how that came about, since the email list itself isn’t served by egroups, but at least the discussions (some silly, some interesting) are being preserved. The archive started December 30, 1996.
Today is L. Frank Baum’s birthday (you know, the guy who wrote the Oz books). So it’s a good day to do “Over the Rainbow,” the Academy Award-winning song from the movie version of The Wizard of Oz.
On today’s date in 1970, the Carpenters’ album, Close To You, containing the hit single, “Close to You,” was released. As it happens, you can now get a square dance version of “Close to You” as an MP3 file from Shakedown Records, distributed by Supreme Audio.
