Great to see you posting Alan.....I used to listen to you when you hosted the All Request Nooner at CFNY....and of course the Ongoing History of Music series was fantastic. I truly do not know of anyone that has the knowledge of the industry that you do. Keep up the great work!

My wife's romance novel, Lessons on St. Barts, is number one romantic suspense in the UK and number six in the U.S. Order it FOR FREE today and see what all the fuss is about! Any goosing of the numbers is most appreciated. Look at all the 5-star reviews! What have you got to lose?
