Andy.....

A delicious mix!

Great to hear some Frank Crumit...one of the huge stars of the 20's; as usual, a great slice of Annette Hanshaw; a sample of one of the other great stars, Gertrude Lawrence; and closing out with Lunceford, Webb & Wilson....very nice.

As always, a great show!

Nick,

Smartest thing I ever did: telling my wife "Why dump our money into mutual funds when we could be happily squandering it on eBay?"

Now, why the hell couldn't a 25-year broadcast professional, such as myself, be able to sell that sound argument to MY wife?

Excellent show. Picked it up from R4All. We are currently broadcasting Hard Times by Studs Terkel and and your show blends in perfectly.
Kudos!
