...two 2-hour shows in one 15-hour period was a bit challenging, but after feeling anxiety throughout this L&F program, I think it came off always, the music saves the day from my inane prattle! Phone calls: one woman hates the Betty Davis, a guy wants to sell me 45's, then another first - a caller actually responds to my request for artist info (reading to me from his CD liner notes about Sam Baker), a guy wants to buy the CD the Fire track "Flight to Cuba" is on, calls about 90 minutes after I played the song...I haven't even broken a sweat yet...
