Your Spotify Playlist Rocks

I have been listening to your podcast since the beginning when it was on NPR when I lived in Tucson, Az, then moved to Boston and still now that I am in Vermont. You teach me so much about la musica and what I like and who I want to listen to. Thank you for your service! Hugs! Roxane
