    Thanks for playing some Jefferson Airplane on the show tonight. They were so important in influencing our world up to the modern era. Nobody will ever be able to duplicate those three part harmonies with the Jack and Jorma connection.

      Thanks. I totally agree on the harmonies (John Doe and Exene of X would probably agree, as well), and what Jorma and Jack could (and till do) pull off is singular.
