    I’ve listened to all of MJ Cast episodes and I love them. This is the first time that I’ve commented. I’m shy but I felt that I had to speak up. My thoughts.
    You all have every right to speak your mind. I agree with all that you’ve said. Demos are great for a cd for the XL Thriller anniversary. Thriller will never go out of style. I’d love to know what the demo sounds. I’m excited about all of your ideas and hopefully the Estate will open their ears and listen to the hard core fans and do the work. The new fans would love this, too.
    Honestly, I hate the 40 graphic font merch. I thought they should’ve put high quality Michael’s Thriller cover on all the merch. I also thought to add a 12 ” x 12 ” high quality poster of Michael’s Thriller cd cover. The poster could be framed.
    Michael is everything. He deserves center stage, forever.
