Trivia Notes: Yes, GraceAnne is Keith's mother, whom we had been trying to get on a discussion since the show began. She did appear briefly on the holiday episode from 1990. Yes, Andrea did make a pun at the end with her comment on having to "brush up" on Shakespeare. The conversation was on the short side, what with the numerous review segments and the large roll call of sponsors who took up a lot of time from the show. This will most likely be a topic we will return to at some point on the podcast.
