About a year ago I discovered John Pizzarelli and I LOVE HIM...I don't know where I have been all my life....I am almost 88 and just found this gift a year ago?

Now I listen to him on my Jessica too....and when he is in NJ I try to get to see him. Saw him first at Ramapo College, then NJPac (when he was supposed to be with Barbara Cook (and then I found out about Jessica), and the last time I saw him at Wm. Paterson U.

Can you tell me when he is on WNYC? It seems like his program is flexible.

Thank you and please thank John and Jessica for entertaining an old lady so well. Eileen Wimberger
