    This was an enjoyable episode but not for the usual reason, the subject, but for the bemused approach to your commentary. Bemused, but very thoughtfully, generously and delicately sparing of the Shagg’s. The Shagg’s themselves, aside from being driven into playing the music and making a few recordings, have lives that seem about as nondescript as one can imagine. But your gentle and mellifluous delivery, almost music itself, bathed the atmosphere in warmth and empathy. They were curious characters indeed. And we all could feel kinship.

    Totally agree with Spoon Agave’s comment. I’m just going to say “ditto” b/c I will not express it as well as Spoon did.
