    Hi Guys,

    I’ve listened on the web before, but Drew down at The Corkscrew in Urbana, IL reccomended burning the show to a disc and listening in the car. As a distributor doing both sales calls and deliveries, I loved the idea. NPR is great, but there is only so many times one can hear the news each day. This is the first show I burned and it is appropriate. We work with Scherrer Winery and WesMar here in Illinois thanks directly to Rusty’s good advice, and introductions.

    I love the common theme of passionate folks helping each other out in the industry – we have found it to be true as well. I look forward to driving around with more of your good work,
