      Richie and Rosie were great. The sound however was not in sync with the picture. I do not know if this was because of our Internet hookup, computer or what, but it was a distraction to their great performance.

      Loved it! My first time to hear Rosie and Richie and I immediately bought their album and Rosie's Pearly Snaps. Great music in my own home! Many thanks and look forward to the next time.
