Good luck, Andrew! You'll be PERFECT! I've always said that you've got a face perfect for radio.

Plus that personality. Just don't be commenting on my furniture, OK?

Good first guest!

Good first comment on this blog, too!

Congratulations! What time is the show? I am assuming I can get it on Internet radio?

WOW Andrew, I always wanted to be on the radio. You can borrow my 1955 Les Paul.

May even arrange a little sand......

I've got a weekly appointment at just the time that the show airs. KPFK's website doesn't list any web-accessible archives for the show. Is there any way to hear it other than over-the-air at the appointed time?

Best wishes on your inagural program! I'll be sure to check this out. I love Al--and in fact, I posted one of his poems today on my blog.

Update from Kate:

Great job!

The clips of Al's performances were a great touch.

Today's show was a fantastic exhibition of the power of the mighty pen. I love Al Young more every time I hear him. Looking forward to the next shows.

Thanks!
Linda
