I just want to tell you, John, how much you have enriched my life through the years. I've been listening to your show for a long time. I guess as long as it's been on, and you have consistently brought some of the the most beautiful music I've ever heard. Thank you.

Many thanks for a wonderful end-of summer NYC re-entry. Certainly the most inspiring Merritt-to-Hutch-to-Jackie accompaniment I've encountered.
