      Can anyone in the USA or elsewhere for that matter, tell me if the

      Webster Hotel is still standing?

      If it isn't, when was it pulled down?

      I will be in Chicago in June, and I thought it would be good to see the

      spot where one of my favourite

      jazz bands recorded.



      Regards

      Peter

          Hello,

          Sorry to disturb everyone with "admin" matters again, but I have just
          noticed that the group's welcome message was no longer systematically sent
          to new subscribers.
          When the automated function stopped working, I have no idea, I will try to
          fix this as soon as possible (and for the time being, I do not understand
          why).

          Still, I would like the new members and first time poster who are, at the
          moment, greatly helping the list to wake up from its temporary hibernation,
          to be aware that this is primarily a mailing-list - that is, most active
          members receiving each message as individaul email.

          I have just edited two posts (something I never do, and do not wish to do
          again), removing hundreds of unneccessary lines from the previous
          contibutions. I think that even quoting the whole of the previous message
          (which everyone has already read) is quite unpleasant, especially for a
          one-sentence comment!

          Anyway, here is a copy of the text which Micahel and I edited in 2006. It
          would probably need updating, but it provides the main guidelines for using
          the group, which does not have the sophisticated features of a forum - end
          even less of a chatroom!

          If you have comments, questions, or claims about this, please use my private
          address, or redhotjazz-owner@yahoogroups.com
          (same mailbox) - DO NOT REPLY TO THE GROUP

          Thanks,

          Patrice

          Welcome to redhotjazz@yahoogroups.com!

          Although it shares its name with the Red Hot Jazz Archives, this group is
          run independently of http://www.redhotjazz.com . Its topic is not
          restricted to the content of the website, but covers all aspects of jazz
          rooted in the pre-war era, including ragtime and swing.

          MEMBERSHIP

          All messages can be read from
          http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/Redhotjazz ,
          but only members can post.
          Membership requires approval; Yahoo automatically requests a "reason for
          joining" but your reply is not sent to the group, so it is strongly
          recommended for members who wish to post to introduce themselves.

          New members are moderated, which means their first posts must be approved
          by one of the moderators and may be delayed. As an extra protection against
          spammers, this feature is maintained as long as no message has been sent to
          the group.

          MEMBERS SETTINGS

          You can choose to receive and send messages as individual email, or read
          and post from the group's page if you have created a Yahoo account.

          Settings can be changed any time, from the webpage or by sending blank
          email (no content or subject line needed) to:
          redhotjazz-normal@yahoogroups.com if you wish to receive individual email
          redhotjazz-digest@yahoogroups.com if you wish to receive daily digests
          [EDIT : not recommended, since too many people forget to "clean" their
          messages]
          redhotjazz-nomail@yahoogroups.com if you wish to stop receiving mail

          POSTING TO THE GROUP

          Attached files and html code are automatically removed, so that no virus
          can reach you through any of the group's messages.
          [EDIT : the HTML content of the "full featured" messages is safe,
          it is added by Yahoo after the original post has been cleaned]
          Everybody is expected to use understandable language and sign their
          messages. Do not write in uppercase, which is considered as "shouting".

          Discussions are organised in threads, so for everyone's convenience the
          subject line must be kept whenever you are replying to previous mail, or
          changed (adding "was: ...") if you are departing from the original subject.

          Please avoid excessive quoting, i.e. the repetition of a complete message
          followed by a single-line comment, or the complete list of previous
          messages after your own contribution; quotes should ideally be restricted
          to a couple of sentences.

          CONTENT

          All members are welcome to contribute, and should never be influenced by
          the content of previous postings which might make them assume the list is
          only for specialists, or excludes any relevant style or musician.
          Regular announcements other than updates to the Red Hot Jazz Archives are
          not the purpose of the group, but occasional information about
          topic-related websites, radio programmes, exhibitions, bands etc. should
          also be part of the group's activities.

          Unrequested postings include spam, chain letters, hoaxes, virus warnings
          and whatever is clearly forbidden by Yahoo terms. Private replies to one
          member should not be sent to the group unless they are actually a
          contribution to the current thread.

          All efforts are made to keep this group as free and friendly as possible,
          so we are relying on everyone's self-discipline as far as off-topic content
          is concerned. Do not forget to add a smiley if your comment is meant to be
          humorous, and avoid statements that might lead to a truly off-topic
          argument.
          As a general rule, questions regarding the group's management should be
          sent to the moderators, who will make their replies public if needed.

          IMPORTANT: "ADMIN" messages can only be sent by moderators, and no public
          replies are allowed.

          WEB FEATURES

          Members can freely upload photos or documents after they've introduced
          themselves. Please create a folder (album) before uploading photos, and
          think of removing heavy sound files after a reasonable amount of time.
          Storage in the "files" section is limited, so heavy files may be removed
          any time by the moderators.
          [EDIT: the storage space has been seriously increased since then. But if you
          do wish other members to have a look, it is safer to tell them you've added
          something! ;) ]

          We hope you'll enjoy contributing to the redhotjazz group.
