Did I miss a great song about FLOWERS? If so let me know in the comments, and I’ll consider it for a part two show for this theme. Unfortunately, I gotta moderate the comments before posting to the site because of the spam spiders. I do get all of the comments, however.

  1. I come here and listen to this over and over and over again. He is with all of you and this is a beautiful tribute to my beautiful son who is missed beyond the depths of any heart. He flys free now and smiles with ALL of beauty that UArts brings to this wonderful city! Thank you! Thank you for this incredible selection of music! He is loving it today and every single day!

  2. Ms. Flanagan,

    Bradford is still sorely missed. Tears come to my eyes as I type this. He was a beautiful soul. I’m so happy that our paths crossed.

    You have no idea how much your comment means to me. I am so happy that you appreciate the show. I did it out of love. Thanks so much!

  3. Thank you so much for this site. I stumbled upon it tonight. I think about Brad and miss him everyday. I have a playlist on my ipod dedicated to him that I constantly listen and add to. It includes songs that were important to us, songs that remind me of him and songs that I think he would love if he were around today. I want to add this to my playlist so I can listen to it and continue to hold him in my heart. Thank you so much.

    ~Vanessa (a.k.a. Butterfly)
