Last November, I was feeling very sick, and my son took me to the emergency room at St. Agnes hospital. It turns out I had Multiple Myeloma, which is a form of blood cancer. I began treatments and within a few months went into remission. Now that I am in remission, I am able to get a bone marrow transplant at Johns Hopkins. It is a long procedure, and will take me out of commission for the entire month of July, and the first part of August. Believe me when I tell you that I would much rather be in the studio every morning sharing the world’s greatest music with you, but I need to do this so that I can continue to share that great music with you in the coming years. Abhin, Kati, Jonathan, Dyana and Judith will be covering my shifts at one time or another. I can’t thank them enough for their generosity of spirit. I can’t thank you enough for the support you have showed me over the years. I’m going to be back just as soon as possible. Thanks again, and keep listening!
