Thanks very much to Joe for putting together a great show, and for supporting WMBR!

Tune in for Larry Miller's psychedelic and folkie Christmas Day edition of "Lost & Found" next Tuesday! There will be no "Lost & Found" on New Years Day as WMBR's Music Department will be counting down the Top 100 new releases of 2007 as determined by WMBR. I'll be back on January 8.

Happy holidays, I'll see you in January!
