On this day in 2018 ...
After publishing nearly 3,000 editions -- 365 days a year for eight years -- this “labor of love” has reached its end.
I’m sorry for any disappointment and inconvenience this shutdown might cause many thousands of regular readers around the world, especially the media people who have depended on this source in their work. I am glad the Almanac was useful to you and hope you would agree that the service was accurate, reliable and, since it was free, that the price was right. It was out of frustration after not finding any dependable service for this kind of data to use while I was still working in radio that I began compiling these files, wanting information I could trust. It has been a joy and a source of pride to be able to share all of this with you.
Even though you won’t see my blog anymore, offline the files will continue to be updated, augmented and polished, because who knows? Someday the material may be made available again in some form or fashion.
In the meantime, thank you for your many kind words of encouragement and support over the years, all greatly appreciated.
Farewell from the Olde Disc Jockey's Almanac.
Enjoy your day! Make it matter.
