Great Shows

Dear Retta and ThE MiGhTY HaWK,
Love all the shows...your intros, your support of old-time, recent, local and general good-for your soul music. My fella and I have been fans for long time...we are 22 years together and Mondays on KBOO are "our days" to recover from world-wide spazzzzzz! Thanks for your contribution to the greater good.

VW and her man, Scratch
