  1. Hi - just wanted to thank you for posting the link to the Tom Fowler, etc interviews in the CKCU archives. I knew those interviews were going to be on, and had even marked them on my calendar, but 3:30 is a tough time for me - I managed to miss every single show! I searched for the archives after the first show, and couldn't locate it - so again, thank you.

  2. excellent! glad you liked it!!!!
