    Jimmy,

    Much thanks for posting the YouTube video of my “Chicago Bears Theme Song” on your (10/12/11?) show, as well as the complimentary words that you offered right above it. Doing what you did, really promoted the song and gave the video’s views a huge shot in the arm.

    I just became aware of you and your show last week and checked out your recent (entire) show in which you interviewed Chris Cooley (via a website which allows people to go back to past show). You really have a great show and are an excellent interviewer. I intend to check out future episodes, as well as some of the past shows.

    And on a paranoid note: If in the future, should you ever happen to mention me again, please don’t publicly disclose my FULL NAME, as YouTube trollers (individuals who do not create anything, but spend huge amounts of time dishing out unwarranted [and often profane] criticism on vids), in their infinite craziness, unhappiness, and negativity, might try to determine my address, or otherwise make life quite unpleasant for me, should they learn my full name.

    Again, thanks for the promotion.

    Pete A.,
    Metropolitan Chicago area resident
