I like it!
It definitely needs some sharpening up, but he sounds like he's having a lot of fun. I can't wait to see where the show goes with time. Keep up the good work.
Easy on the ears.
Three things I love about this show:
1) the way the host unravels a thought;
2) you can tell the guests are having a good time;
3) the music is mighty fine.
Nathan is an awesome guy!! Funny as hell and I forgot how sexy his voice is!! GO NATHAN!! =P I'm sold on your show dude!!
