I finished the audiobook and I am beside myself with pride, joy, sorrow and enthusiasm for your journey. You kept me glued to the page. You described each adventure perfectly and you brought tears to my hearty eyes as you came to clear realizations of success and defeat.
I truly enjoyed listening to this adventure (twice…once in real life and once in your story).
I am so impressed by your honesty, your integrity, the family you created and the YOU that you have become. Thank you for giving us SRL’s a reason to live, love and laugh for so long.
Much love to you and Lynda and the kids, grandkids and dogs
I love and appreciated the energy you have put into your purpose.

Just wanted to say hi, I got the soft cover copy of your book and I’m loving it. I listened to Mark and Brian on KGON in Portland for years, and still miss hearing you guys on there. I just found the podcast, and heard where that might be ending now, of COURSE I don’t find it until the end 🙁 Same with Brian, he had a podcast but by the time I found out about it, it was done.
I hope things are going well, thanks for writing this book. ETA I have now finished the book and just watched your film Mother Ghost. I’m crying over that one, it was so good. Excellent work.

Ok, I finished reading your book and I LOVED IT!!!
Went to the Christmas Party the year Barry Manalow performed, saw you at the Forum when you had the “Lucky Butt” rub his butt on the ice and was at a few other events.
I remember the time you had David Gates from BREAD on the show and you had NONE of his music. I called the station and offered to drop off my cassette of “Best of Bread” for you to use. I was on my way to work when I dropped it off. When I picked it up after work, I was given a copy of his latest music. So excited to have helped you guys out.
After reading the book my heart broke for you and all your show went through with Howard Stern. I must have been oblivious, or you just hid what was going on really well. I hate him by the way!!
I had a lot of DeJa’Vu moments reading the book, stuff I completely forgot about.
I’m sending your book now to my brother to read, he was a huge fan too.
So, thanks for the memories of a wonderful time in my life. So happy to hear Linda finally got some grand babies!!

Just finished reading your book last night. I really enjoyed it and it was nice walk down memory lane since I was a listener in the early years. I went to a listener event in 1991 and still have the autographed pants my baby was wearing that you guys signed.

Ok so I got your book on December 11 and finished today December 20th.. for me that’s amazing considering I haven’t read a book in its entirety in almost 15 years!
Thank you for taking me down memory lane as a listener and thank you for sharing your life both on air and off
As a listener we just enjoyed the show and could not have known the struggles you had with anxiety . We know as my daughter has it and it is a battle.
You didn’t mention one of my favorite memories when the guy called to confess that he put his own turd in his girlfriends cat box and she spent hundreds of dollars in vet bills to see what was wrong with her cat!.. Classic
And the sounds a dog makes when he is eating!
Thank you for making my drive to work tolerable and making me laugh first thing in the morning for over 25 years!
There will never be another Mark and Brian .
I won’t say you guys were perfect and I’m sure you meant to put the typo near the end of your book when you were talking about not being perfect (page 249 .perfect “oesn’t“ exist) But you did that on purpose I’m sure.
Thank you again..

I just finished listening to the audiobook. You bastard Mark, you made me cry no less than 4 times.

I was graced with 4 books in Lake Havasu City because the post office zip tied them together . My husband said score. I thought of all those listeners in my neighborhood that would be debated. I took them back to the post office. Moral of the story; Don’t listen to your husband.

Got my book in the mail and very nice but thought they were supposed to be signed????
Oh well, maybe another stupid listener who didn’t read something correctly.

Hello Mark and Linda. I was a long time listener and huge fan of the show. You guys helped my wife tell me she was pregnant with our son, he’s 30 now and she has passed away. You guys got me thru hard times and made me laugh every day. I was lucky enough to get Christmas show tickets one year. I just ordered the audio and soft cover book and can’t wait to listen and read them. Take care and thank you for everything your doing for the puppies and kittens. Love and miss you guys. Hooty Damn Who !!

Longtime listener here. Loved the book! Laughed til I cried in spots (especially Polo Lounge). You guys unknowingly enabled me to meet one of my childhood heroes. I saw Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods open for the Osmonds when I was 12 and began following them too. After you had Bo Donaldson at one of your events, Bo decided he missed playing and wanted to form a country band. My husband was the drummer for that band so I got to know Bo. Eventually, Bo reformed the Heywoods and they still play occasionally. He said you were very welcoming and nice. Hooty Hoo! Love you!

> Thanks a million for writing this book. I was a big fan of the show. I’m a couple chapters into the audio version and I love it. I always wondered about the Alabama years. It’s funny listening to that, I’ll be moving from LA to Alabama in January. Thanks for all the laughs and good luck with whatever you do.

Stupid listener Sean here. I had posted on TikTok that I had bought 2 books, one for me and the other for my stoopid brother…who went and bought his own book. So, I guess I need to find out how to return the book so that another stupid listener who wasn’t able to get the hardcover can grab it up.

Hey Mark ( Lynda and the family)
I got my book, signed by Mall, lol. I realized I need the audio version as well so I went back and just bought that too. Mark and Brian were such a huge part of my younger life, I know I will love both items. Hi Lynda and thanks for all you do. Love the podcast!!! Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year too.

Hello Mark, thanks for doing this. I decided to go with the audio book just to hear one of the voices that brought so much love, laughter and craziness to my life in the 80’s, 90’s, 2000’s etc. I will probably buy the hard cover too so I can see the pictures. You are truly a legend and wish you success with the book. Christmas show tickets?……

Hey Mark, Heard you on KLOS this morning and it brought back beautiful memories! Just wanted to let you know you solved my Christmas shopping dilemma — I bought 17 copies of your book and am now free from the burden of Christmas shopping! I am also recommending donations to The Eastwood Ranch Foundation to everyone looking for a worthwhile place to contribute some money … now and in the future. Thanks for all you’ve done and all you do…Barb Hurst

I received my hardcover book and look forward to reading it. I am disappointed it wasn’t signed as that’s why I got the hardcover. I did get a book mark, so there’s that. ha ha Any way to get it signed or get a copy signed sheet ? By the way, I was the guy who sang for Styx tix and got to sing on stage with Styx and REO after singing Renegade. Good times. Thanks and hooty hoo.

I was a huge fan of Mark and Brian when I lived in Southern California and was truly sad when the show finally ended.
My brother in law is an even huger fan and the book has come out just in time for Christmas/birthday presents. However, it seems the hardcover is already sold out! Congratulations! I’ll be getting the paperback for him instead, unless you think the publisher will be doing another printing before mid January.
Also, since the audio book is in the form of an app–and it’s a present (he definitely will want to hear Mark and Brian clips, thank you for that) how could we facilitate that?
