I guess everyone's out getting cash to stuff under their mattresses.

But I just wanted to say THANKS for having Barbara Orbison on. Great talk about a great human being. I am hugely awed by Roy Orbison every time I hear him and see clips. But of all his considerable assets--I have never once thought of "great kisser."

Can't wait to hear the box set, especially the early works.
