A sincere effort to get the original members of Dokken back on speaking terms will also be made whenever possible." I'll be on at some point in there. I'll try and update this with the exact time. Regardless, you can listen to the whole thing online, on your radio, or download it afterwards. Listen here

March 12th is the 5th Annual Katie Fisher Day, a holiday to send cookies to someone you love. It’s that simple. Why do we do it? In memory of our friend, Katie, who was a treasure to everyone who knew her. Among other wonderful things, Katie baked & mailed cookies to her brother, Matt, every single week for the 4 years he was away at college. And since this holiday was started by improvisers, what better way than to celebrate - than with comedy! Matt Fisher (Law Firm, UCB) and Rachel Rosenthal (North Coast) are bringing together a cast of big hitting improv greats from all of the NYC theaters to give you some laughter to dip those cookies in.  Bring yourself! Bring friends! BRING COOKIES! We will also be accepting donations to be given to charity in Katie’s name. Join us for a true comedy celebration of love, joy, and of course - delicious cookies. #KatieFisherDay Details and tickets here
