Post by: Soundman on April 15, 2010, 04:33:03 am
This week I play homage to a past program on DLBN with an all instrumental show I call "Speechless. " One disadvantage to going the prerectorded show route is I'd already completed it when I learned that it is airing on the former host's birthday. So while it's too late to say it on air, it's not to late to say it here - Happy birthday Tasha!
