My first comment is to offer thanks to all of you who posted those nice and complimentary comments about the July 6 TRADITIONS program. I do realize the sound quality of Hour 1 was a bit off but that is the joy of recording at a live festival---and I do hope that the people in the background got the food they were searching for. Still, the performers were the main thing and I do believe that they were wonderful and well received by an appreciative audience.
Now for a few personal items. The coming Sunday (7/13) will be a new program BUT with a requested Comedy Corner featuring my interview with the author of "Overweight Sensation--Allan Sherman". Please join me for this interesting interview about our most requested artist.
On the personal comments I have to add that on the 7/20 edition of TRADITIONS I will be making it a bit of a personal show---albeit with some new material. It is now 20 years (cannot believe it) that I have been joining you on these alternate Sundays. I am having a few life changes now with regard to living quarters and I thought we might reminisce a bit about where I am now, where I am going (still doing the program---like it or not) and recalling some of the artists I had on with me in those early days. If you recall who some of the were I would appreciate your input, requests, and comments. I know that Kate Campbell is up there along with Mary Gauthier---who were your favorites?
One last thought. The Hudson River. Sadly, I will be leaving that most beloved (by me) area. If you have a nice picture of the river that I might enlarge and frame please do send it to me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for listening---or joining me all these many years and, hopefully, all the years to come.
