We were interviewed about the book in Montreal last May, and we have just received a nice note from the interviewer, Leslie Lutsky to say it will be aired this Saturday (i.e. tomorrow).

“Hello, I interviewed you in Montreal a few months ago  and strangely enough the interview will be aired this Saturday  Oct 4  at 8:30 in the morning Eastern Standard Time.   Interview can be heard on     or on podcast for one week following interview.    A sweet year to the both of you   –  Leslie Lutsky”
