Michael Truman Cavanaugh emailed: "Hi Marc, Long time listener and patron. I heard a song recently on one of your casts but I can’t seems to back track my steps and find the tune. It was about a fellow passing away and this song was his last gift. Can you name that tune and artist? Also, a request for an upcoming pod I would love to hear “My Pretty Irish Girl” in honor of my long lost sweetheart. Hopefully we’ll meet again."

Megann Eichner emailed: "Hi Marc, I was able to get all of the music easily and with no problems!  I have not had the chance to listen to all of it yet, but I can’t wait!  I love your podcast by the way! It is so unique, and the music is great! Thank you!"
