I'll echo your remarks, Mike - what a delight! Incredible stories. And, that voice! Just when I think these things can't get any better, they do. Again, a total delight. Thank you!

Excellent! Do you know this episode is 111 minutes and 11 seconds? Sure didn't feel like it!

I really enjoyed this one. Didn't know anything about Colin. Fascinating life story.

Yet another fascinating episode! You and Colin have tremendous
chemistry. In my not-so-humble opinion, CTV's weekend dinner-hour

But then again, I live in a one-channel, antiquated rabbit ears, analog
universe!! Fun fact: the other cover version referred to in the episode was
by an English girl group called Atomic Kitten. Former Dr. Who sidekick Billie
Piper also took a crack at the same song in the year 2000.

One of the best episodes you've ever done, didn't really expect that going into it.

Colin has a crazy story.

For Mike's Kick Out eppys, I know he's big on LP versions of songs for that sense of completeness. So I was surprise to hear the radio edit of Tide Is High by Blondie. It's a happy song but since it came out in late November 1980, I can't help think of that winter, rather thansummer
