Thanks to all for your feedback on Day 5. I played 3 selections over and over for the first 1800 riders. Although classical is not a favorite for everyone, 1799 riders seemed to enjoy it. One rider #0067 arrived in tears. Apparently, the music moved hear so much she needed to stop to dry her eyes.

I hand expected to transport up to 600 riders over the course of Day 5. Turns out only around 300 total were transported and of those, less than 100 to the finish.

None were transported in the area where the classical music was playing.

Thanks for your suggestions, I did play many of them and will look forward to more suggestions for 2009.

John,

Personal thanks for your enthusiastic efforts on the music front. You made a difference for a lot of riders, and as I commented to you at the rest stop on Day 1, your copy of Fanfare for the Common Man directed by Aaron Copeland is hands-down the best. Thanks again to all of the SAG drivers for the tunes they chose to play, in particular on Day 5.

Good job Jackson!!!

Even if the only thing you did for me was say "HI", it was good to know you were there in case I needed you.

Yes, thanks Jackson. I really enjoyed the operatic aria playing on one of the hills on Day 5. And the bubbles always gave me a smile.

I could not believe my ears when, on Day 1 at the 1st ODS rest stop, they were playing Paul Pena's version of Jet Airliner! That was wonderful!

Thank you!
