  • Brian G. was a delight! Loved his story and how brightly he presented it. The show moved so well and was, as always, very entertaining.
    Jeff’s perspective on the questions presented, is great fun, while being highly informative.
    And, you can’t go wrong with Nat “King” Cole, ever.
    Thanks for a wonderful show.

  • It was a good show. Brian Rowley was a charming guest. It was nice to hear about how he got into leather. Brian makes a nice pipe at an affordable price. Like so many of your guests he discovered how hard it is to make a living carving pipes.
    What can you say about the music. Just terrific to hear Nat “King” Cole. I don’t know why his contemporaries in jazz music thought he would be better giving up singing and sticking to playing the piano. Sad we lost him at age 45.
