  6:37am Joe:

Sounds great! Looks like a beautiful day, too...
  6:40am annie:

as long as there will be no huddling under eaves, i'll take almost anything at this point.

Great show to start off the morning! FYI -- "The Trains" by the Nashville Ramblers was recorded in the md-'80s and actually released in England (albeit, very obscurely) in 1987.
