Finally caught up!

FINALLY! All the archives of "That's Life" from January 2017 thru today have both DESCRIPTIONS and IMAGES. That was a lot of work.

I'll think about listening to and indexing 2016 and earlier ... someday ... maybe ...  we'll see ...

Actually, I haven't even finished indexing (let alone digitizing!) all my old DCTV shows.  Those started in the 1990s and ended in 2003.  During that time I had several series and a few stand-alone programs on the television side before KDRT was formed and I switched to the radio side.

We sure had fun producing all those tv programs! 

And now I'm having fun doing my weekly radios shows.

Things always change.

But then, That's Life!
