>>Hey Matt,
>>If you could send this e-mail out ASAP, I'd love you forever.
>>My 21 year old girlfriend Summer was recently diagnosed with kidney cancer
>>and I'm on a mission to have some of her favorite bands call her or visit
>>her. Tomorrow night, Slim Dunlap is playing at the Coach House in Santa
>>Barbara with Mary Lou Lord (he's also playing tonight in Tempe, AZ at Long
>>Wong's). We love Slim. We went to see him play at the Casbah here in San
>>Diego awhile back and he charmed the hell out of us, playing country songs
>>and just plain being sweet & hilarious. When he was done, we talked to
>>him for awhile and went back to our car. In our back seat was a toy we'd
>>recently found at our local Pic n' Save, a "cornymonica" (a plastic
>>harmonica shaped like an ear of corn). We knew he had to have it and
>>we've never so impressed by someone's reaction to a gift like that. He
>>LOVED it! He had a friend who was a corn farmer and had a whole house
>>full of stuff made of corn and couldn't decide whether he should keep it
>>for himself or give it to his corn friend. We wanted to take him home so
>>we could listen to him talk all damn night. Anyways, we're leaving for LA
>>to see a kidney cancer specialist at UCLA on Sunday but if he called us
>>Saturday night or Sunday morning, he'd be able to say hi to Summer and
>>it'd give her a big smile. Unfortunately, he's playing in San Diego on
>>Sunday night when we'll be in LA or else I'd be setting this up myself
>>(and going to see him). If you can get to him somehow and have him call
>>collect, I don't care! Drop me a line and I'll give you my home phone
>>number. I recently got David J (ex-Bauhaus, Love & Rockets, & Summer's
>>favorite, The Jazz Butcher Conspiracy) to call her and sing her a tune
>>over the phone when she was in the hospital. Slim's one of the nicest
>>folks I've ever met & I know he'd be willing to at least say hello. If
>>you e-mail me soon, I can try to call you from my work and let you know
>>the scoop.
>>Thanks in adavance for your help
