  16. thanx David & everyone else involved (Tim, Bonnie, all volunteers and suppliers of what we heard today) for another fantastic GD marathon, I had to leave the house to do some stuff for a little bit but listened today perhaps more than any other year I’ve gotten to enjoy GD marathon. I hope that it was a huge success for the station we all so love!
