“Your preparation and in depth knowledge about what we do was unique in and beyond any radio broadcast I have ever experienced. This led to a depth of conversation that was exceptional for such a short meeting. And, of course, a great broadcast. Finally, it was fun to meet you. I do wish we had more time to speak and broach other subjects. Please put me on your party list.”
