How did you get on my list
For the accidental subscribers or if you cannot remember
No! I did not add you to my list manually or against your wishes. I have never and would never do that. If recently started receiving my newsletter and don’t know how that happened, the following may be why.
You subscribed to another Substack - one that recommends mine.
Substack has a recommendation engine that includes a somewhat obscured/confusing, “You might like these” option. It shows up immediately after you subscribe to a newsletter and with a single click will subscribe you to one or more additional newsletters.
I am recommended on at least three newsletters:
Jesse Ventura: Die First Then Quit
David Gottfried: Mad Dogs and Englishmen
Chris Dangerfield: Dangerfield’s Exaggerations
As much as I would love for you to stay around, I do understand how annoying unwanted emails can be. Unsubscribing is easy but do not want to do it yourself, just send me an email from or containing the email address you are subscribed with. I will remove you.
Others on my list
The bulk of my list goes back to 2009 when I started playing music in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and California. Also, those who attended house concerts in the past. And a few of you came via some free documents I provided via one of my websites. In particular, a consulting proposal template that I posted back in 2014 or 2015.
Either way, I would love everyone to stay on my list and share it with a few others. By a few, I mean, 10,000 to 100,000 of your closest friends.
Thanks for taking the time to read.
