The Gonzo Daily: Thursday/Friday
There won't be any bologs tomorrow because Mother's Funeral will be at Barnstaple Crematorium at 9:40. All are welcome. No flowers please but donations in her name Dementia UK. https://www.dementiauk.org/
Thank you to all of you who have sent kind words and prayers to us following Mother's death and Corinna's most recent bout of illness. They are very much appreciated. Please forgive us for keeping a low profile at the moment.
The latest issue of the magazine which is still called Gonzo Weekly even though it has been fortnightly ever since Corinna was first taken ill in July 2018 You may notice that the radio shows are presented differently than they have been. That is because we have something very exciting in the pipeline, which I will get around to telling you all about when the current pile of obligations are sorted.

AND OTHER STUFF FEATURING VARIOUS GONZO CONTRIBUTORS:
I think it is really rather good, but then again I would say that wouldn't I?
AND THE LATEST ISSUE OF THE GONZO MAGAZINE:
And in this first issue of the new decade we say goodbye to Mother, and to Paul Whitrow. Alan hikes the Pennine Way, Doug eulogises Terry Hall, and Jon remembers a night with Dr Strangely Strange, Mad Iccy looks at the ups and downs of 2020, while Graham looks at the last 12 months of activity on Planet Hawkwind.
And there are radio shows from Mack Maloney and Friday Night Progressive AND Canterbury sans Fronieres AND Merrell Fankhauser, but no sign of Strange Fruit this week, there is a column from Kev Rowland, but Mr Biffo, and C J Stone, and Neil Nixom abd Roy Weard, are on hiatus. There is also a collection of more news, reviews, views, interviews and antichinuses who have lost their shoes (OK, nothing to do with tiny marsupials who are searching for their footwear, but I got carried away with things that rhymed with OOOOS) than you can shake a stick at. And the best part is IT's ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!

* The Gonzo Daily is a two way process. If you have any news or want to write for us, please contact me at email@example.com. If you are an artist and want to showcase your work, or even just say hello please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please copy, paste and spread the word about this magazine as widely as possible. We need people to read us in order to grow, and as soon as it is viable we shall be invading more traditional magaziney areas. Join in the fun, spread the word, and maybe if we all chant loud enough we CAN stop it raining. See you tomorrow...
* The Gonzo Daily is - as the name implies - a daily online magazine (mostly) about artists connected to the Gonzo Multimedia group of companies. But it also has other stuff as and when the editor feels like it. The same team also do a weekly newsletter called - imaginatively - The Gonzo Weekly. Find out about it at this link: www.gonzo-multimedia.blogspot.co.uk
* We should probably mention here, that some of our posts are links to things we have found on the internet that we think are of interest. We are not responsible for spelling or factual errors in other people's websites. Honest guv!
* Jon Downes, the Editor of all these ventures (and several others) is an old hippy of 60 who - together with a Jack Russell called Archie, an infantile orange cat named after a song by Frank Zappa, three other cats, one totally coincidentally named after one of the Manson Family, purely because she squeaks, puts it all together from a converted potato shed in a tumbledown cottage deep in rural Devon which he shares with various fish. He is ably assisted by his lovely wife Corinna and a motley collection of social malcontents. Plus.. did we mention Archie and the Cats?
