“You exposed your real self and they cheered you on, hanging on every word. The connection was palpable and joyous to behold... I salute you Jim Alabiso for your courage and honesty in presenting "Tonight! With Jim Alabiso". So many cool guests. Smokin' Band. And the audience was with you every step of the way. You spread your arms to people and they respond whole heartedly. Thank you.”

“I’m not gonna let the “Cat out of the Speedo” and reveal details about what I experienced last night on your show, Jim. I could say, “Jim, your hair looked fabulous” and that would be true, I could say that I was honored to be included in such a talent hefty line-up including your crew. That would also be true. What was truer though is this: You opened up a Pandora’s Box of people who are comfortable in their own skin, doing what they were born to do, and helping people connect in the process. Each one of your guests has that, and like a carefully crafted Humanities class, you emphasized the common denominators and each unique cultural, professional, artistic, or educational language of choice. It would have been easy for you to frivolously simply spew superlatives around your guests- a huge mutual admiration society. I admire each and every one. But you accomplished so much more than that with your actual interest, knowledge, humor and real substance, and by allowing each his/her opportunity to share that. I’m amazed at how you seamlessly brought these ideas to the surface. I want to shout out to Mike Bernos and his band Spice and the Po Boys, whose performance, demeanor, and talent are second to none. I would LOVE to write to each guest my profound new insight on his/her craft, but to say more would let the "Cat out of the Speedo". You might edit me if I do that. So I won’t.Thank you for including Holly Decardenas and me in your first of what I'm certain will be many successful shows.”
