Nicole is glad to see this week end. Julianna Forlano brought some cheer to the day as she's pregnant, and we now know she's got a little girl on the way!

Our Flashback Friday segment was from December 1996 at KSCA in Los Angeles with Emmylou Harris, Susannah Hoffs and Duncan Sheik who were all performing that night at our annual homeless benefit, "Gimme Shelter."  I started a second session, but the computer died, so we'll do that one next week.
