  1. First off, Happy Birthday.

    My question, will you ever record any of those songs you provided for the 25th anniversary SI Swimsuit Video? My fav was “Evening Star” and would love to be able to own that on cd.


  2. HI, John:
    You are so great about signing cds after your programs (when you are able). After all these years, I would think you’d be tired of greeting the fans, but you are always so gracious, so it must be from the heart. Tell us about your relationship with the fans, please, and what that means to you.
