Send a greeting!
Announce an engagement, admonish the babysitter, celebrate a birthday, or just say hi. At each live show, we collect greetings from the audience and from the Web site for Garrison to read on the air.

Each week's greetings will be collected and posted with that week's broadcast in the archive, and may be selected to be read on the air. To see your greeting, go to "Old Shows" and find the week you submitted it.
