Started March 23, 1993, the
DANDOM DIGEST is the original Internet resource written by, for and about
Steely Dan fans.
Actually, independent studies show that reading the DANDOM DIGEST induces
greater worker productivity and workplace satisfaction. ]
DANDOM DIGEST is in no way connected with Steely Dan and/or their glorious
OFFICIAL STEELY DAN NEWSLETTER. Nevertheless, it is believed
that you will eagerly anticipate every edition of the free-of-charge "Dandom
Digest" and that you will want to join the list of approximately
3,000 other Dan Fans who already subscribe, read and contribute writings.
in the DANDOM DIGEST includes the latest unofficial news and rumors about
Steely Dan and associated musicians and artists; album and song interpretations
and discussions; trivia; information about fan gatherings all over the
world (referred to as "Danfests," "Danventions," "Wing
Dings," etc.); television, newspaper and media sitings of Steely
Dan; and lots of opinions. Because they have significantly influenced
Steely Dan, you will also find tangential discussions of Jazz and Blues.
During tour season, there are fan reviews of concerts called "Spoilers"
appropriately named since the reviews often divulge set-lists and spoil
surprises before others have had a chance to see Steely Dan perform in
their area. (Some DANDOM DIGEST readers wish to avoid such "Spoilers"
and they are clearly marked in each edition of the DANDOM DIGEST.) The
Digest also occasionally sponsors written contests often of a humorous
and satirical nature.
in all, each DANDOM DIGEST encapsulates on a lot a levels what is happening
in greater Dandom.
The views, thoughts, verbal attacks, and other expressions featured in
each DANDOM DIGEST reflect only the musings of lunatic emailer with nothing
better to do but hero worship and copiously follow every micromovement
of the musical duo Steely Dan. SD, hoops, his relatives, pets, his employers,
DANDOM DIGEST, Apple Computer, etc., are in no way responsible for any
moral or legal transgressions.
DANDOM DIGEST comes out as frequently as every day during Steely Dan tours,
or as infrequently as once a month (or even less) during periods of extreme Steely Dan inactivity.
Typically, each edition of DANDOM DIGEST is about 300-400 lines of text.

Mail List-Individual Post format
The DANDOM DIGEST started out as a mail list where each individual writing
was sent to the subscribers as the author submitted it. This "mail
list" or "individual post" format of receiving the content
of the DANDOM DIGEST was available from 1993-1999; In 2008, it
became available again on a limited basis; currently about 40 fans of
the approximately 3,000 get the individual posts as they are submitted.
For the time being, those on the mail list, getting the individual posts,
also are required to get the DANDOM DIGEST because the content of the Digest still differs from the individual posts . If you wish to get the Mail
List/Individual Post option in addition to the regular DANDOM DIGESTS,
the DANDOM DIGEST archives are not available, but will return
sooner or later. When last available, the archives reached all the way back to August
If you have copies of the mail list posts and/or DANDOM DIGESTS from March
to August 1993, or have a way to efficiently access QuickMail files, please
