I listened to your program Pipedreams/ Double Duty on May,20, 2012 in Las Vegas on KNPR by shear coincidence, I am trying desperately to obtain the CD from Bobby Hackett/john Seng "Music 'Til Dawn", especially the wonderful song " these foolish hearts". I appreciate any help you can give me.
Sincerely
