  • Tags and Summaries

    In the past month we have had contributions from bjb and Windigo and I have added a few tags & summaries myself. Many thanks to all contributors.

    See the current status and instructions for making your own contribution at "Shows without a summary and/or tags". This page has recently been reformatted for easier navigation and a new section has been added. This section lists the hosts whose shows need attention followed by the show numbers that need work.

    Currently there are 957 shows which need summaries or tags to be added. All contributions to this project are most welcome.
