Great to listen to, thanks you guys, and to hear us blast in right off the top was very fun. Honoured to be on the list!

Fitted sheets are one of our favourites; comes to my lips every time we make the bed.

Great idea to highlight Jame's voluminous contributions. Everything sounds wonderful.

It IS possible to learn to fold fitted sheets! Motivation note: the sheets take up less space when flat as opposed to rolled up in a ball. The Method: Take one end, put corner seams back to back (one inside the other), and fold the edges (the part that tucks down) along end and longer side. Then fold up as normal. Easy! But it's a fun song, even though I dispute the idea of helplessness. Just think it through...

Really enjoying listening to the show this morning - a truly impressive set of recordings. Enjoyed the diversity of the 40 minutes. Thanks James, and Chris.
