But the beach is […]
In the Wells Tower profile of Barry Hannah I reference in the spoken introduction to today's story (which you should treat yourself to), written before Hannah's 2010 death, the following is offered:
Waiting for you
Please reconsider coming back. We miss you.
Adore this podcast
I am simply addicted. Great story selection read beautifully, often prefaced by Miette’s hysterically clever humor. Hope Miette becomes super rich so she can read to us nightly =) Miette, cheers from the mountainous suburbs of L.A. We miss you.
