  1. What an amazing production! It really turned out well, and everyone did such a great job, especially Chris for his terrific George Bailey (I also loved Martini)! My family and I listened to the full production last night, and quite a few times, my Mom actually was moved to tears. It really had everything, and I often found myself laughing out loud, especially at Baba. It really is a wonderful life, and I thanks for allowing me to share in your amazing talent. Have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

    1. Thank you for the really great feedback, Geoff!  I appreciate the kind words.   One of the things I have come to realize is that I never get to hear the show the same as someone else does.   When I am putting it all together, I am working on every little detail one scene at a time.   Sure, I do get to hear it all when it is done, but that listening experience can never be the same experience that someone else has listening for the first time.   I never know what impact it will have on the audience, so thank you for sharing your listening experience! And thanks for doing such a great Clarence! Happy Landings!
