thanks from a duck's breath fan!

having been a fan of the duck's breath mystery theatre for almost as long as they have existed, i found this little retrospective wonderfully enjoyable.i have a set of programs a local public radio station aired back in the early '80's and hearing segments like "one true radio" and "heroes of the future " brings back some wonderful memories.
thanks so much once again!
