In 2010, I started recording the issues of The Jot ‘Em Down Journal beginning with the very first one from 1984. This project was stalled a year or so later after, I think, the December 1989 issue. I resumed the recording in 2020 to complete them through the February 1992 issue because it was with the April 1992 Jot ‘Em Down Journal that NLAS Vice-President “Singin’ Sam” Brown officially started reading the issues onto cassette tape for our blind members of the National Lum and Abner Society. Beginning next time, you’ll be hearing Sam’s original recordings, just as he recorded and distributed them shortly after each JEDJ was published from April 1992 until Summer 2007!
