  3. HOLLAND! I was SO excited to hear you sitting in for Jimbo! Great show!!! I loved the smooth interaction with the callers and your ability to keep it rocking…great job! I’m a huge Jimbo fan, and when I heard you sitting in for him, it was a double bonus. I enjoyed meeting you at Conclave, a broadcaster’s group. You’re an interesting guy and your show was flawless!
    GREAT JOB!!!
