I listen to this program frequently and would really appreciate it if you could post play lists.

Uncle Mort's fate

Hey, Dale or Steve;
I have enjoyed your show for decades and sincerely hope your long-running show does not suffer the fate of Rockaholics Annonamus. Uncle Mort is no longer avail. by email;
can you tell me if his appeal was successful? How I can reach him? Wishing you continued success in navigating the treacherous political waters of kboo.

you have great taste

Can you post a playlist of last friday's show? 12/5/08. I happend to be traveling to portland at around 4 and turned on your show and heard a bunch of great music I've never heard before and only thought to start writting the names of the bands and the songs at about the last 5 mins. thanks a lot.
