The 6th Annual Rejection Day Counter-Valentine’s Day special brought several guests in with us this morning. Thanks to Dale, Diane, Jaspar Lepak and Sneaky Pete Bauer for bringing more songs of loss and longing—and thanks to you for all the requests! Next year: same time (Tues. before Valentine’s Day), same theme (because we can’t go through it alone),but different songs—so be sure to show up, OK? Please?
