The Handels have a small CD rotation at family gatherings. You'll definitely hear some Paul Simon, probably some Traveling Wilburys, and almost definitely... Lyle Lovett. We especially love his second album, Pontiac, which came out in the late 1980s, and we've pretty much stuck with him ever since. So far, no album touches it for us, but after listening to his newest release, It's Not Big, It's Large, Pontiac faces some pretty stiff competition for air time at the dinner table.

Dear Mr. Lovett,

I have seen you play live several times and each time I am dazzled by your quickness, intelligence and wit. You are such a storyteller and obviously those stories are planned. I'm wondering if you, like Mark Twain, prepare some quips ahead of time?
