Show 1 – Houston Fringe Festival and Cameryn Moore Interview

Show 1 is actually the third or fourth show we had recorded. It took us a bit of time to get up and running and without any distribution, it didn’t seem to make much sense to release those first couple of programs. In the future, there may be a special offering of the “lost” episodes.

The official first show features Cameryn Moore, who was in town to perform at the Houston Fringe Festival. Bill had provided lodging for Cameryn on a previous tour and we met and had a delightful lunch and then retired to his porch for the interview.
