  1. Jeff… I just stumbled on your 197? Interview you did with me at the hobbit hole on Long Island..
    Yes I remember that..I want you to know that your review, when I was 26 yrs old, inspired and encouraged me as I, shortly after that, made my way to Nashville and eventually in 2009 into the songwriters hall of fame. Thank you for believing I had something .. I am still in Nashville .. Helping encourage and helping Develop young artists and writers. Thank you… 30 yrs later kye fleming
