Notes

Uncle Larry reminisces fondly about today's studio happenings and stuffs his arm way up inside the VCB pipe to remove some clogged comments.

Thanks for watching the show people...we got a pretty good thing going here.

...and speaking of good things, check out this bad boy

Steve Cox....a dear old friend from Cleveland,
He taught a young Uncle Larry some very valuable musical lessons back when Larry was just a mixed up kid living in some shit rental house with a carpeted kitchen in Antioch.
I owe Steve a lot.....i still use some of the things he showed me on a daily basis...and ol' Larry never forgets anyone who helped him anywhere along "the journey".
