I wanted to put this up on the website so I don’t bore you with it on the air.  I haven’t really been talking about it much, but the reason I sound so out-of-it on the air these days is that I had a stroke (actually three small ones) just over two weeks ago.  I was in the hospital for four days and I’ve been back at work for about a week now.  I don’t think I’m close to 100% as far as my performance is concerned but I’m doing my best and feeling better and stronger every day.  The people here at 101 Gold have been wonderfully supportive and have told me to take it at my own pace.  Listeners on the phone have been extraordinary in their expressions of affection and support.  Thank you all.  I wish I could give each of you a big hug.  Hopefully when I’m fully recovered I’ll be able to.  I appreciate your patience, believe me I know my work isn’t up to my usual standards but I’ll be back to normal just as soon as I can.  Thank you so much for your expressions of support.  Don’t let anybody kid you, that stuff really does make a difference.
