No problem, Sean. Happens all the time! ;-)

Thanks, Jon. Speaking of loops on my show, next week's Vinyl Starter,
instead of being a dinosaur disk, will be new vinyl from Fear Falls
Burning, the alter ego of vidnaObmana. I think that you will clearly
hear some serious looping going on.

Perhaps some of the problem with the messages I send is because
(1) Loopers Delight is in my address book's list called "EM Playlist
(2) I send playlists to the "EM Playlist Distribution" list as blind
copies (Bcc:) in order to preserve individuals' identities, which means
that Loopers is not in the To: field.
Thunderbird ought to help you filter stuff well enough for the results
you desire. To aid that, I *always* format the Subject: field of my
playlists to allow filtering in case a Loopers member wants to can my
stuff. The Subject: field ALWAYS starts out:
"Galactic Travels Playlist for" with the rest varying according to the
date and show number. Plus, there should be plenty of non-changing
content in the playlists to help you filter them out.
