Getting into the groove!

This is only my second issue of CM and, as the board and staff adjust to me and I to them, we are slowly developing a regular format for the magazine. In each issue we want to include: ten to twelve reviews, some selections from our digital archives, a news section - with smaller pieces rounded up into the CM News Bulletin Board, a web site review ( or two), and a features section, which we are currently developing.

We also want to allow readers an opportunity to express themselves. Anyone interested in writing pieces for CM can contact me to discuss their ideas. Any announcements of upcoming events will be included in the bulletin board - just send them in. The format is organic and ever-changing according to the needs of the readership, so keep telling us what you want.

Let's keep CM interactive and in the groove (not the rut)!
