I'm originally from Bangalore, India-- I love your shows. I get to learn things about American culture, like about Lutherans on your show. Sometimes I laugh loudly in the car and others give me such odd looks.
I liked the imitations of Ross Perot, George Bush, etc. that were done during election time. Let's hear the imitator again please. Can he do Indians??
How about having a guest from one of the other NPR programs- like Bob Edwards or any of the newspeople, Terry Gross or Jerry Newmann, or the Tappet brothers?

Dear Ali Shaik,
Our Tim Russell does an Indian accent that is as good as that of the late Peter Sellers. We will have him crank it up one of these Saturdays, and hope you won't be offended. As for the guests you propose ----- we had Terry Gross once, and would be glad to have her again, ditto Bob Edwards ----- the Tappet Brothers, Click and Clack ---- I don't know. Is it possible to get them to stop laughing at their own jokes? Or is that their shtick? Or are they really that funny? GK
