    I *loved* this performance by Jimmy and Will! Thank you so much for offering the kids an opportunity to perform in public/on radio and the public an opportunity to hear their sweet, heartfelt performance. It was a great way to acknowledge Christmas/the holiday season.

    An unrelated question: would you be interested in having other children who are accomplished in other areas on your show?

    Thanks so much for your show, for Jimmy and Will’s performance, and for being such a nice voice to wake up to on Saturday mornings!

    Best wishes,
    Nancy Downes
