MI Stu ,

I have a crush on you, Felix :)

...especially after the episode you did from home while cooking in the snowstorm :) With my kids, we have been cooking our way through the countries of the world, so we like when countries are mentioned in the show notes. That way we can listen back to that episode while we are on a specific country. I spent two years in Colombia and Ecuador in the ‘90’s, so I especially love when things come up about rock en español, South America, and the Andes. From the episode that you and Jasmine did on romantic music: I totally agree with you, Felix. I love to hear Jasmine doing her reporting on NPR and the 10th Anniversary episode was a blast. My other favorite episode is Cinco de Morrissey, which I’ve listened to every Cinco de Mayo since. Hoping you will visit our home station, WGVU, and hear our local favorite band Cabildo
