Postcard, the Uncle Tupelo/Wilco/Jay Farrar mailing list, was founded by Jake Roberts, and is currently owned and managed by Dave Dewey <>. The list not only focuses on UT and its spinoffs (Jeff's new band Wilco and Jay's new band, Son Volt), but touches on many other related bands in the indie/alternative country, country-rock and country-punk genres -- bands referred to as "Rural contemporary" or "Insurgent country", such as Bottle Rockets, Palace Brothers, Ithaca Gin, Blue Mountain, Freakwater, etc. There is now a separate list called Passenger Side that is solely devoted to these bands.

Here's the most recent information from Dave on subscribing to the list, and other list administrivia:
