Thrilled that I found this!

I always enjoyed listening to Diane on the radio. Now I am thrilled that she is now on my podcast subscription list.

Thank you Diane

When Diane’s book “On My Own” was published in 2016, Phoenix’s NPR station, KJZZ offered an autographed copy to sustaining members if we increased our monthly contribution by an additional $5 per month.
The book retailed for $23.95. I’ve paid approximately $250.00 to date. The book is a signed copy of pure Diane. Maybe one of my best investments, today’s value, Priceless.

The best

I listened to Dianne for years each morning in my shop. I don’t think there is a comparable interviewer. She gently guides the conversation and gets the most from her subjects without being the least intrusive.
Thanks for decades of enlightening radio.
