THANK YOU FOR LISTENING TO MARIE'S SHOW!

Posted by powerpopclassics on April 13, 2020 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (0)

A couple of weeks ago, my incredibly talented daughter Marie took the show over, and, according to all the feedback I have received, basically made it her own!  One very loyal listener sent us the message, "MORE MARIE AND LESS JOHN T.!"  Others were less direct, but the message was certainly received on this end!  After checking reception reports and Mixcloud statistics, it appears that Marie's show was heard by an audience of approximately FIVE TIMES our normal group!!  I...
