A nice break!
I really enjoy the stories and also the background information in the introductions. Including the public service announcement by Vincent Price urging tolerance and racial acceptance is poignant. And thank you for the Wednesday comedy as well.

OTR at its Best
Host adds knowledgeable background and insight to each show, and the OTR commercials are a great touch.
