jeff S: Hi Amy! I did love this show...I am inspired by Judy Shephard and all the wok that she has done for the GBLT community in the aim of tolerance for all of us. I like the interview starting off w/ Kelli at first. I encourage all supporters of this site and windy city media who sponsors gay idol every year to voice comments-the more the merrier. I will go back to singing all the songs in Crae's book once idol 2008 is over after June 13th..I will be doing Christmas songs w/ Elvis...Also, I would like to see all kareokoe supporters of Honey West at Roscoes,Melissa at North End and Dirty Laundry from Charlies to be out and write in Amy's blog and podcast...It is a lot of fun to listen to...I hope all is well..Oh, I almost forgot Alma who hosts Davenport-I will be out once i get my tax return..take care,Jeff
