This is an unusual episode, produced in 2003. The theme was “family”, and when my own mother and father were visiting, earlier that week, I got out the microphone and put them on the spot. They were great sports… I especially like my mom’s recollection of how she first fell in love with music (and how she doesn’t really understand how what I play IS music…). In spite of everything, they find a way to be supportive. Thanks mom and dad!
