Options March 22, 2020: An encore presentation of my 2015 interview with Kate Pierson

Due to the current state of things, I thought I'd re-air this program, as the B-52s have always been my musical version of comfort food or a cozy blankie.

Thanks to Ruth and to Scott Williams for holding down the fort, er, studio.

Now, let's dance this mess around!

xoxo, Therese

@Sally: It depends on the state. In Oregon — for example — shore towns that red;y on tourist are being flooded with “tourists” from elsewhere within Oregnon since… Why not? But the problem is they don’t have the resources to assist anyone who falls ill in areas like that.

Just recommend either taking day trips to places nobody really will swarm or add it to a list of things and places to visit in the future.
