    This episode took me to another time and place!
    EJ, you put your foot into it and had all bases covered:)
    The flow is so smooth that I even more now firmly believe that your music programming skills should be offered to radio stations to include Sirius XM.
    This is how I want my music listening experience to feel like!
    Keep it up and don’t worry, I will be back for more!
