Happy Birthday to baby sister--or is that babe of a sister--anyway, isn't this a whole lot better than a phone call? (This will make no sense if it doesn't make it to air...)

Greetings to son Christopher working for Lufthansa at JFK tonight. Still hoping Garrison will stop by to learn how to pronounce ALLIANZ! Love Mom

Congrats on the milestone birthday. We're glad you could come celebrate with your daughters in the big city...and happy you will return to Pittsburgh after the weekend. But really, we couldn't have had more awesome parents if we picked them ourselves.

Happy 12th birthday, Ajda, from Mom and Dad. If you're listening you'll be delighted to know that you will finally get your wish - pierced ears!

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.
