Hello, partygoers!

Well, this is it. The sad moment we knew would come eventually – the final episode of the Listening Party.

But now ain’t the time for your tears – to paraphrase Bob Dylan – we’ve got a show to do! This bi-week, Mary and David read your celebratory – we hope – comments and play some fun Top 5 playlists!

As we pack up the Listening Party rumpus room and put that old beanbag chair back into storage, we’d like to thank everyone who spent time with us here. We hope you know how much we love and appreciate you all!

As always, thanks for listening.
