Roll Call: A Good And Country Tribute To American Veterans. This was a joint effort with Ken and Ron Thums (formerly of Radio Rumpus Room), and we covered songs about and for the veterans from the World War II era and forward to our military men and women currently serving, including operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. A big hearty THANK YOU to Ron for his concept for the show, his insights, promotional work and for supplying a healthy portion of the music featured.
