Times Zones - EST, GMT, BST
By Karl Ellison

A slight correction of time tables for those planning to listen to
the performance of Ballet Mechanique at Lowell, Massachusetts, on
Nov 18 via WGBH Web Broadcast.

Peter Neilson, a ham radio operator and all-around good guy, has
adroitly pointed out to me that EST is only 5 hours behind GMT,
also known as UTC [Coordinated Universal Time].  My bad figure was
probably due to the fact that I did not know that there existed such
a thing as "British Summer Time", which is off an hour from the
unwavering GMT.

Karl Ellison

 [ Note that in the USA 'S' indicates standard time, whereas in
 [ Great Britain 'S' means  "summer time", which we in the Colonies
 [ call "daylight saving time".  In a few days California will
 [ change from Pacific Daylight Time (PDT = GMT +0700) to Pacific
 [ Standard Time (PST = GMT +0800).  This probably won't affect my
 [ sleeping habits, though... <yawn>  ;-)  -- Robbie
