Thank goodness for friends like Rita Rega.
With no notice, she stepped in and, tastefully and swingingly,
took over "Jazz In The Afternoon" after our house fire
on New Year's day.
A big debt of gratitude is due her.
Please expect nothing but the best jazz to continue from us both
on "Jazz In The Afternoon" while I work my way
through the long process of rebulding our home
and replacing, restoring, and re-organizing its contents -
including my music collection.
Our show's founder, the late Jim Andrews,
would expect nothing less.
Sincerely, and with regards to all,
