dave and i talked about switching shows one week. it unfortunately never happened, but this was my idea of how "the organ grinder meets big a, little a" might have sounded. by the way, saturday from noon till two (dave's time slot for years), some of his friends from the station will be sending him off in style.

(Pictured l-r: chris chang-yen phillips of cjsr's terra informa, joe hartfeil aka jojo the organ grinder and dave.)
