We recognize conflicting civil scheduling surrounding the next regularly scheduled day for the release of LISTen: An LISNews.org Program and Burning Circle. These situations do arise from time to time. The Air Staff of Erie Looking Productions hereby provides notice that no programs shall be released on Monday, April 1, 2013.
Those subscribed to LISTen: An LISNews.org Program via one FeedBurner feed or another must change the feed location in their podcatcher or other RSS reader immediately.
