As some of my longtime readers may remember, I consider April the anniversary month of this website and 1999 the anniversary year. I honestly don’t know when I actually launched the site. It may not have been 1999. It may have started in 1998. However, the earliest files I have on my computer are from April 1999, which is why I always celebrate the anniversary of the site in April.
It’s hard to believe I’m been writing about M*A*S*H for 19 years. That’s eight years longer than the show was on the air. It’s even harder to believe next year will be 20 years. If you’re interested, check out my About page to learn the history of the site and see what it used to look like.
I never like writing anniversary posts because I always feel like I have to apologize for not producing any new content during the past year. For several years now, I’ve been working on several projects in my limited free time, two of which utilize contributions from readers and fellow fans. One is a look at the classical music Charles listened to. The other is an overview of syndication cuts. Unfortunately, I haven’t made much progress on either of these projects. If I’m lucky, I’ll be able to finish one before the end of 2018. We’ll see.
So, who remembers when the name of this site was M*A*S*H — Finest Kind?
