Dennis makes his big appearance, and shares a little about his time in the South Pacific. He tells how he was classified as an Ensign, the Navy’s equivilent of a 2nd Lieutenant. Dennis sings, Danny Boy.

Mr Kitzel tells about his hot dog business. Who is his favorite radio comedian? Rochester Openshore shares a poetic word. The fun ends up.as Phil plays the show out
