RE: [RedHotJazz] Red Hot Peppers
- Peter, If you know the address of the hotel, use Google Maps and street view
or Bing and the equivalent application. You'll be able to see the building

Subject: [RedHotJazz] Red Hot Peppers
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.

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
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
(same mailbox) - DO NOT REPLY TO THE GROUP
Welcome to email@example.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.
All messages can be read from
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
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:
firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to receive individual email
email@example.com if you wish to receive daily digests
[EDIT : not recommended, since too many people forget to "clean" their
firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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
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.
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.
