One final thanks.

I am grateful to all who pledged to the Thursday Lost and Found. With some late donations I set my own personal best of $3508 which is totally awesome. Thank you to all whether you pledged or not. I love doing this radio show and all the listeners make it worth while. Have a safe, happy, and relaxing Thanksgiving.

 Meanwhile, here is some Thanksgiving soul for you to cook your turkey by:


Dee Dee Sharp - "Gravy (For My Mashed Potatoes)"

Little Eva - "Let's Turkey Trot"

  Quincy Jones & Bill Cosby - "Groovy Gravy"

The Clickettes - "Jive Time Turkey"

Ok, all you listeners fundraising has arrived. I would be incredibly grateful if you would give me a ring during my show today. The phone number is 617-253-8810 and the internet pledging can be found at:


I have complete faith in the listeners to this show so I hope to hear from all of you this afternoon. I have some special premiums you'll need to listen to the show to hear about but the theme of this year's Thursday Lost and Found fundraiser is "Keep Vinyl Alive."

Give a ring if you can, ok?

Much love,


O.V. is waiting patiently for you to call us at 617-253-8810, son.
