My granddaughter has helped me find you on my iPad but it's not the same as hearing you in sirius in the car with great sound. I''ve been loving the music you love for a long time and living on the eastern shore of Maryland was thrilled to find you. Because of your show I decided to do a couple of cd s, accompanying myself on keyboard. It was also a response to the horrors of our popular music. what fun I had! (And it wasn't bad at all for a 75 year old). good luck in your new venture and please go on forever! Judy Amdur. (

Enjoyed your presentation of both Nat Cole full orchestra versions of The Christmas Song (Hi Fi versus stereo) and was wondering how to get the trio version; when lo and behold I heard it played on WBGO just a couple of days later. Have enjoyed your show for years.
