There is no news miscellany this week. We take a look instead in further depth at the zeitgeist on-site.
The mainstream media is depressing us pretty badly as all they seem to talk about in libraries are these few topics: retirements, deaths, and budget cuts. That also cuts into things we can talk about. With an effectively non-existent budget, we don't have the capacity of an organization like Reuters or Agence France-Press to do original reporting. The Air Staff chose in this episode to make a call for materials submissions for potential airing. Audio cassettes, reel-to-reel tapes, and audio CDs would be acceptable while microcassettes and DAT cassettes would not be. The episode audio has more details but for the avoidance of doubt the mailing address stipulated is:
Erie Looking Productions
