Van Morrison Mailing Lists

There are at least 6 Van Morrison related mailing lists to choose from. Click on one of the links below for full details on each list:

Both the original VAN-L and VAN-INFO are LISTSERV mailing lists, which means that there are number of options available to you. For example: by default you will receive mailing list submissions as individual messages. You can change this though, and receive the list in digest form (an entire day's worth of messages bundled into a single large message) by requesting the Digest option when joining either list. Detailed information on LISTSERV mailing lists can be consulted at http://www.lsoft.com/manuals/userindex.html

VAN-L (the original)

This is the original Van Morrison Mailing List, and still the best for general discussion of Van Morrison and his music. The members of the list are very knowledgeable on all things Van, and are usually quite willing to answer questions. This list is unmoderated, and tends to be fairly chatty.

VAN-M Yahoo (the alternate)

This is an alternative to Van-L, the original Van Morrison Mailing List. Created in August, 2003, it initially called itself "Van-L Yahoo". The list name was changed to "Van-M Yahoo" in November of 2005. The stated focus is "A mailing list for discussion of Van Morrison and his music." There are currently three moderators, all of them longtime Van fans.

See also the information on the Van-Info list for yet another Van mailing list option.

VAN-INFO

This is a newer companion list to the original Van-L, and is co-moderated by Henk Rutten and Art Siegel. This list is intended to be for the dissemination and discussion of more factual Van-related material. All VAN-INFO messages are fed automatically into the VAN-L list, so you really only need to join one or the other.
