This "Linkage" page is only a very small part of a very large website, and to be honest, it's no longer a priority. We maintain it for those who have befriended us over the years. For the most part, the older links are near the top and have been here longer; the sites listed near the bottom have been recently added. Please keep in mind that "older" for REELRADIO may mean the link is 14 years old!
If you find any of these links are no longer working, please let me know. [Uncle Ricky]

The WEB Magazine featured the Repository as EDITOR'S CHOICE in RADIO/TV Site Reviews for June, 1997. We rated an overall 5, which is the highest rating they offered. Then, they nominated us for a 1998 Webby Award, which they inappropriately awarded to Audionet (which became "broadcast.com", and now just resolves to "yahoo.com"). Then, The WEB Magazine ceased publication. The Webby Awards are still around, there are entry fees involved, and they never apologized for their 1998 indiscretion.
