Hello! Our Guest this week is Bro. Ronald Bates of Ohio. Brother Ronald has an interesting genealogy, about which he has published a book entitled Shakespeare's Lost Purple Bloodline. Also on this episode, we hear from Dutchie Doug, Michelle Snyder, and Jim Stephens. We wrap up with the news and what's on (off?) the horizon, followed by Larry's All Chicken-No Turkey Supper Club Band.
