Special thanks to everyone who has helped with invaluable support over all these musical years, including VPR program directors Kari Anderson and Franny Bastian, and especially Ty Robertson, Gigi Weisman, and Nora Ostrander, all of whom have spent many hours helping me out in the control room....on to year 23!
