Another long time radio buddy Bill Latour (yes – THAT Bill Latour!) donated his phone patch setup which made plugging the phone into the mixer a whole lot easier. Check him out here: Wikipedia: Bill Latour  [See, we weren’t kidding. He IS THAT Latour].

Ritsu Katsumata: Extraordinarily talented violinist and friend who graciously gave permission to use her music as our podcast theme song. Her website is linked on our “About Us” page, and here it is again anyhow:
