When things get off on the wrong foot, they sometimes stay that way. After the problems we had with the CMJ server last week (we had to post the Net News a day late), the e-mailing of "At Your Personal Request" was delayed and delayed until this week. The upshot is that we missed an issue. Never fear. This week's edition has all the items our readers missed and just as many more fresh ones. Regular readers of the CMJ web site will notice some items are re-posted, but bear with us. Please accept our apologies for the snafu and settle in for an informative read.
