oh man am i dense.... upon closer inspection.. the popup of the cover has tiny writing , it states the broadcast dates upon it ,... huzzah for my earlier lack of observation skills....

i can't believe we have 7 of these to look forward to... i would have to go out of state for a week when Doc is moving at top speed with goodies galore...

On a personal note, I have been a fan of the Electric Light Orchestra since the mid-1980s. But, after watching the video on this compilation... it really makes me wonder about Jeff Lynne. He's a seriously strange person.

"Time" <-- one of the top ten best albums EVER!

Don't hang up...
I may need CPR
...unless this is really heaven.
I'll know when I wake up.

but it didn't soothe my emotion"
Hey Anonymous, I'm just glad your a faster bad reader than me. I was gonna ask those same questions. Man, this is the best!!!
Pink isn't the only fashion on the runway...

Sorry, Jim Bob...
You think your reading is an issue? I already forgot your name. Elation can bring carelessness to one's immediate recall...
(motor skills are "off")
and I'm not even celebrating yet.
Thanks, Doc.
Thanks, Jim Bob.

I don't mind being homeless...
but how am I ever going to get the other five volumes of this series?
This is the real heartbreak...this is the best 'show' I've ever seen. And all brand new to my eyes...
Weep, weep, weep!
