This was certainly an interesting and pretty great three hours. It's always fun at the station, but this was wild. I'd already had plenty of suggestions coming in, but the calls were amazing, discussing, among others, Ambrose Bierce, Faulkner and Steven Vincent Benet. I always knew I had the best listeners, but now I realize, I also have the most literate. It was a great, if exhausting three hours.

Next Tuesday is National Night Out, so all the songs will have Night, or a variant thereof, in the title.
