Now I'm hearing Bjork's voice in Ida Marie's voice. Someone must have slipped me an hallucinogen.

@Michael Shelley: I bought my copy directly from Will Birch, easy as pie and cheap as (imported) dirt. Can't explain the inflated prices for it on the Intertubes.

not a bad take on wynn stewart.

Out shoveling snow when "California Sun" came on. IT was a big, why-I-love-great-live-radio moment. Yes, I also very much enjoyed MS's artful handling of the telephonic hiccups before the interview.

"The godlike Hollies" is actually my phrase. Hova adopted it from my use.
