    Thank you so much for doing this. If we do not save our own history then who will? You are doing an important public service. The show is done at a high level. I know is a lot of work and effort to pull this off but pull it off you do. Keeping the LES alive and interesting. Sending much love, respect, and appreciation,,, clayton
