    I totally agree with the Neverland thing. It is such a shame that it is (even now) close to being lost forever from the MJ family and MJ fan community. If I had the money I would buy it without a doubt. It is so sad to have it potentially lost forever. Time to enter the lottery folks!

    Great episode with great topics!
    The most important of all: Michael Jackson’s hair style. His best was the September 1995 MTV VMA, his second best was In The Closet, END OF!!
    It would be interesting to have an episode dedicated to Neverland to understand what COULD be done legally, financially and logistically, with what would be viable. Inagree with you and Steven’s comment; such a shame it’s not used to remember Michael Jackson. Maybe the state of California could buy it and make it a natural reserve and call it something to commemorate him, it would be better than… than nothing.
    Maybe that’s discussed in a futire episode, I only have about 100 to go 😁
    Great finds of the week, if you Ecosia (i. e. If you “google” with the Ecosia search) “Kelly Alexander Scream Anniversary”, you get TWO podcat episodes! One with Tina Landon and one with Travis Payne. Interesting how they share such a different perspective and it was fantastic to hear about the 2009 MTV tribute.
    Ah, James Horner, such a great composer.
