Irwin..this is the first time i've heard one of your playlists..I was on my way to shoprite buying some champagne..and I was intrigued with "Gilbert Green", Check out my new jesus", "Closet Queen" so I went online just to look you up..love your mentions of the "In case of emergency Bob Dylan" I couldn't stop laughing when you said " I believe no other radio station has something prepared in the event of Bob Dylan's death" You have such a great and refreshing variety here..you're without a doubt the best DJ on WMFU.
  12:01am Signorini:

Re: govt healthcare: "A government that robs Peter to pay Paul will always have the support of Paul." I think GB Shaw said that.
