Congratulation Eric and family.  The photo is great and I am sure you will
find the new facilities great.  There will always be improvements but just
getting new clean studios can be a real PR plus.  Keep the music spinning. 
I like the list of requests for Tuesday Night.  See ya and Newport. ALOHA 
Tom
