I never really thought that this fantastic site would go away, but I was a bit worried about it... weren't you, friends? But an "angel" (in the showbiz sense of the word) appeared at the last moment, and now all is well once again.
I got a couple of messages asking me where the Picks could be found if Dieselpunks vanished into the digital Great Beyond. Well, you can always find it with your favorite search engine, just by typing in "Pilsner's Picks." However, now you won't have to do that, since I'll continue to post the link here at the beginning of every month.
To answer another question, my page is completely independent— not a division of Dieselpunks, but I'm a long-time and proud collaborator here. Being a one-man operation that uses the cheapest (i.e., free) means of webcasting, I don't have to worry about funding— other than my own paycheck continuing to come in— and so the shellac platters will keep on spinning, until I stop spinning. Which, hopefully, won't be for a long time to come!
Have a happy Fourth, my fellow Americans, and now for the fireworks—
