    Thanks for the nod, theninjarabbit! Your memory is accurate. I called TJ Lubinsky's program on two separate occasions, and TJ was welcoming and enthusiastic. Jim Pierson was featured on one of those occasions. The appreciation shown to Carpenters was palpable. I'm usually tied up Friday nights, so I don't get to listen as often. But I am so glad to hear that Carpenters' love (and A Kind of Hush love) is a regular feature. Take care, Friend!

    Yesterday,Carpenters heard in Congress....
    Here:'Hanging around, nothing to do but frown...'

    "As House members assembled in their chamber this morning for their expected 9 a.m. session,
    which ended up starting about 15 minutes late, Rep. Tom Loertscher, R-Iona, regaled them with
    Rainy Days and Mondays” by the Carpenters,
    thanks to a bright-yellow speaker attached to his laptop that he set on his House desk.
    Among the lyrics: “Hanging around, nothing to do but frown. Rainy days and Mondays always get me down…”

    This is more of a funny anecdote but I had "If I Had You" piped to my stereo from the cellphone, and it sounded soupy. Like, abnormally soupy. I'm sitting there thinking, "God, how much reverb did Richard add to this?". The phone somehow had the audio set to "Concert Hall". Oops... :laugh:

    Close To You,
    today at noon, 89.5 The Villages radio.
    I must confess, I have underestimated this Single.
    Listening on the car Radio, today, that ending, where
    Karen holds that final lyric/note "...You..."
    Takes my breath away...so beautiful....

  9. I feel like I am hitting the jackpot all the time recently during my drive time listening to Sirius XM Radio. During one drive this week, I heard both Close to You (70s channel) and then Top of the World (Love channel)! This morning I heard Hurting Each Other; I am not sure how they select their music, but whoever is at the controls is doing a fantastic job for the Carpenters' fans out there. Keep the hits coming!
