    Just a correction that I saw: Teal and Katie’s last show is September 25th not the 27th, and Jackie and Chandra take over on the 27th not the 29th.

    Sad to see KRC go, but it’ll be nice to see a 1st national reunion with Richard H. Blake if his leave is really temporary and he’s still around. Very cool, love Jackie and Chandra. They’re a great pair.
