The Morning Show August 19 – 23

I’m looking forward to taking the reins back from Michelle who did her usual outstanding job in my absence – notwithstanding various technical problems courtesy of yours truly.  We have a number of great guests – including the usual suspects, and some old friends scheduled.  As always, we ask that you please forward this newsletter to any friend, relative, acquaintance, casual contact, frenemy, enemy, or nemesis, whom you think would enjoy learning about Radio Monterey.
