well folks, we’ve made it to the end of another year – this is framework’s last edition for 2023; we’ll be back with edition #872 in the second week of january. in the meantime there are 43 other shows from this year (perhaps you missed one?) up on the framework website, and 4 editions of framework:seasonal published this year on our bandcamp page – plenty of listening to tide you over during our winter break. and as it’s the season of giving – perhaps this is a good time to pick up a copy of one of those releases, for yourself or maybe as a present for a friend, or maybe this seems like a good time to finally become a framework patron? it would certainly be much appreciated, as we will be relying on listener contributions to get us through another year (our 23rd!) of broadcasting. go on! we know you care!
