    Just had a fantastic drive from Portland to Seatte. Why? Because I finally got to listen to the podcasts. Spent the drive with with Dave, Fritz, Nick, Lee and of course with CBG and Robert. Time flew by even though my old partner is a bastard for not thanking me for working my ass off so he wouldn’t get his ass “worked off”. Steve G even suggested we leave him in the slammer overnight, at least as far as I recall. Michael James though was a true prince. Let’s hear an episode with him. Others that come to mind would be Magical Mystical Michael (the european version, not the texan kind) and Christer Pis. Christer Pis was in New Orleans sticking a saw down his pants and pulling up a dildo. Only on the streets can you see stuff like that (and only in Europe would it be appreciated).
    Thanks David for taking this on. Can’t wait for more.

    Wow, Magical, Mystical Michael ? i haven’t thought about him in about 20 years. Used to share a pitch with him, compared to me, this guy was a pure space cadet, if he was drowning, nobody could of saved him cos he was to far out.
