Phil Congratulations on the new show, Mike! I started listening to you on CKUT in ca. 2000, and was happy to rediscover your Saturday morning show last summer, since you're my favorite curator of the roughly 10 DJs I follow. I've been listening to the Saturday shows in order from 1/1/17, and I've now reached mid-2018. One gem after another. :-) And the first episode of this new show was excellent too!

A great show Mike. I was in New Orleans once for Mardi Gras and had a great time. Hope they can have a real Mardi Gras there again by next year.
