Word from Our Sponsor:

  • Joe Lynn Turner & Sudafed
    • Michael Eriksson says: “By the way, Turner told me once that the commercials he has done was extremely well payed and that very few performers was on the short list. In other words, he made a fortune on them. But it has to be noted he got them because he could deliver. Good fun to hear that stuff now.”
