Thanks for all the fish...

A lot of thank-you's must be passed around.

First, to the staff of WXCI, a thank you for being gracious and allowing a bunch of old-timers to come in and admire all the stickers you have over every square inch of everything....oh yeah, and for allowing us to relive some of those thrilling days of yesteryear. To Chris, Anna, Joe, Jim, Hugh and everyone else...thank you.

To Tom Z, thanks for squeezing me in during your segment. I know I was kind of a question mark, but we did manage to teach the staff something (at least about roman numerals) and we had a few laughs in the process.

To Morgan, Jesse, Greg, Jeff, Bill,Rudi, Mike, & Pam, thanks for overcoming the adversity of learning the board and equipment so quickly and putting on a hell of a show. Somehow working at XCI has always been a technological adventure, and you folks still managed to sound like you were having a lot of fun, even during the "Dead Air" segments.

To Rabbett, Dennis, John, Dood, and the others who phoned it in from your own private Idahos.
It was great to hear your voices once again on 91.7.

To Greg for getting his pictures of the event posted so quickly on the blog. Take that Wal-Mart photo processing!

And a final thanks to Rich, not only for running the anchor lap of the celebration, but for running this blog, spreading the word, and helping to make the day the event that it was. I think we all should start thinking about what me might do for the 35th! Hell, I might even come out of hibernation!

BJ, coming out of hibernation? Now there's a scary thought. Run for your lives!

But I concur -- thanks to everyone, especially Rich, to whom I owe 10 minutes.

Particular thanks to Pam, Rudi, Mike and whoever else they had making up their great 80s conglomerate, for sticking around as long as they did to provide support during my initial shaky moments, and running into the studio any time I had an even mildly quizzical look on my face (which is most of the time).

And let's hope Jen finds a new bass player.

Jeff - you sounded great. So did everyone. It was a great time. And the refreshments! Let's not forget those fab cookies and warm sodas. The more things change...

It was a great day of radio! I thoroughly enjoyed being able to tune in from almost 6,000 miles away and be a virtual part of things.

I'll attempt to drop by for the 35th.

I have some practicing to do ;)
