BMInt Thanks Its Readers and Writers


A very relaxed publisher not too many moons ago.
A very relaxed publisher
not too many moons ago.

On a rainy Independence Day, finding myself in a reflective mood, I looked back at the first published article on these pages. In August 2008 the Intelligencer was born with a placeholder page linking to the “History of Music in Boston” written by John Sullivan Dwight, the founder of the Journal of Music (1862-1881) which was one of the inspirations for the founding of this one. Enjoy the 50 pages [here] and keep track of what has changed and what has stayed the same. Happy reading.

I can also recommend to readers our reprint of the final issue of Dwight’s Journal of Music [here].

On this festive day, as we approach our sixth anniversary, I thank readers (averaging over 3,000 per day) for their comments and encouragement, our 140 writers for producing nearly 3,000 reviews and articles, and our editorial staff for its watchfulness.

And I conclude with BMInt’s official watchword, If you hear something, write something.

  1. Bravo to you, Lee, for filling a yawning chasm in Boston music coverage. And thank you to all your writers as well.

  2. Happy birthday to the Intelligencer, and hats off to you, Lee, and to Robert, David, and Bettina. To all those who’ve contributed to BMInt with their reviews and commentary, warm thanks for enlivening the Boston musical scene. Many happy returns!
