It's official, the Elevator Radio Show turns four years old today! After 183 shows and the support from all of you out there, we’re ready for many more shows to come. On the program today I’ll talk about how many downloads and a little about the demographics of our audience. Never in a million years did I ever think that this show would grow to the size it is and I’m glad that it brings useful information to you each week. Lots of stories on the program today in addition to the show recap so always, thanks for tuning in everyone!
