    George, thank you for the update.  Also thank you for the opera broadcasts this past summer. 
    Another thing…when you missed your show last week,  there was a very good substitute.  Is she an undergrad?   That would be surprising.   Very impressive.  Your show was in good hands.

    Hi Stephen:
    Thanks for your post. Yes, my sub 2 weeks ago is an undergrad, and she's done classical subbing for me before. She's a very good DJ and I knew that my show would be in good hands with her.
    With luck, some more opera broadcasts will occur next summer.
