Big Broadcast PING!
PING! I posted the thread anyway, Vision, even though I didn’t have your full Big Broadcast ping list.
We’re here anyway and look forward to seeing you back here next Sunday, Lord willing.
As I predicted, it’s been very quiet here without you, Vision. You’ll definitely have to listen to the first three shows at least. We had a great, unpredictable twist to the ending of Johnny Dollar, the Dragnet was good, and we hardly ever see Marshal Dillon as mad as he was in this episode.
I hope your time this week was a really good one! Tell us all about it when you can.
