Where was Ken ?

I ran out of gas! I got a flat tire! I didn’t have change for cab fare! I lost my tux at the cleaners! I locked my keys in the car! An old friend came in from out of town! Someone stole my car! There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Locusts! IT WASN’T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD!

Heroic effort!

Great job on the Community News, Dave. Thanks for stepping up and flying solo.

Comment #3 posted on 2019-09-04 12:51:17 by Dave Morriss

Thanks Jon

I was slightly shocked at being there on my own, but I have "ridden shotgun" a few times now and have done a few shows with other co-hosts, so I didn't panic ;-)

I'm glad it turned out tolerably well, and now that Ken has been released by the Dutch Mafia/Yakuza/aliens we'll hopefully be back to normal next time!
