Honey Bunny emailed from Cleveland, TX: "I ran into this on my walk today.  Texas gotta love it."

Fred Peterman emailed: "Listening to podcast #5 at this very moment  (6AM in South Dakota). When in Atlanta, I listened to Fiona Richie's program on Public Radio. Obviously, no longer in Atlanta.  And I believe that your program is "more to my taste".

Steve Miller emailed: "Marc, Listening to "Sunflower #475" right now, going through books in my office and cleaning things up. I have just recently found your podcast and added it to my weekend routine.  I heard you mention DragonCon earlier, & I have to ask if you know Thomas Dodd. I booked his old band Trio Nocturna a few times, and I know he was on the dragoncon circuit for quite a while.

Also, have you heard "Celtic Winds" on WNCW before? If not, you should check it out, it's a great 3 hour show on Sunday's from 12-3.
