Ever wonder whether the emails Mr. D. read on Theme Time Radio Hour were real?

At least one was.

Incredible, Fred! Did you try to make contact with Mr. Hornsby to hear his end of the story?

I've heard back from Mr. Hornsby, who confirmed that he had indeed sent the email read on the "Friends & Neighbors" episode.

He's currently traveling on vacation, but I hope to interview him on his return. That may not get published on Dreamtime, though. I'm working on a TTRH book - about 50 percent complete at this point - and the interview may end up there, instead. I have to have some new content. :lol:

It's kind of given me pause after thinking all these years that all the emails were scripted fakes, even though in hindsight, I already had some evidence to the contrary. Occam's Razor, as I said in my article. Now I'm going back through other emails read on the show to see if I can identify any other "real" people. I wonder if the "Jackie Vann" who wrote in on Sheryl Crow and set off Mr. D.'s "commercial affiliation" rant is real too?

Interviewed Mr. Hornsby today, who was a very pleasant Southern gentleman. Great story.

Now I'm trying to figure out if I can track down anyone else.
