Listener questions and comments:

  • Comment from j3dingle - Dear Mark Longo, Long time listener (at least a year or two, so maybe not that long!), first time emailer. I would guess I'm not the first to suggest this, but have you considered some excerpt of some rendition of "On Top of Spaghetti" for Mark Sebastian's theme song? Looks like the song even has some Chicago heritage: In 30 seconds of you-tubing, I found Biondi's version which is pretty "good": Oh, the dreams/nightmares one has on a Sunday night slumber!
