    Hi Manleywoman,

    Really hope you manage to sort out an interview with Dick Button.

    Enjoyed listening to all your interviews, particularly the one with Barbara Ann Scott. Fascinating stuff! What a legend she is

    One of my favorite interviews to do, because she invited me to her lovely home, we had a great time in her kitchen, and because she's 100% interesting: SkateCast #29 with Slavka Kohout, Part 1 and Part 2.

    I had forgotten her hilarious story about Scott Hamilton. I have to remember to ask him about it if I ever get an interview with him.

    SkateCast 32 with Barlow Nelson. He was a high-level judge, and a student of Maribel Vinson's along with Frank Carroll and Ron Ludington. He has great things to say about Maribel, the 2002 Pairs judging scandal (especially the French judge LeGougne), what it was like judging Rudy Galindo's 1996 free skate, and his positive impressions of Tonya Harding.

    I learned a great deal from the interview with Mr. Nelson; about all the above, and more.

    Thanks skatesindreams! Some of the more obscure interviewees make for the most interesting interviews. :)

    #33 with Jennifer Kirk is now transcribed.

    Just wanted to say thanks for these interview transcriptions! I don't always have time to sit down and listen to them, so it's much easier to be able to read them.

    I don't know if these are being done in any particular order, but I'd love to read Yuka Sato's interview.

    Thank you so much. I loved reading the transcript about Tom Dickson. I'm impressed with the list of students he had. :)

    Debi Thomas and Alex McGowan need to get into a counseling session and work things out. :shuffle:

    Angie, Tom Dickson had an impressive professional career, also.
    He was featured in Torvill and Dean's "Face The Music" tour/video; along with his wife, Catarina Lindgren.

    I have to give a HUGE shout-out to my fan Fiona who offered to do these transcriptions in her free time. They are amazingly thorough and well done. it was something people had asked for for years (mainly those who couldn't listen to the audio for various reasons) but i never had the time to do myself. Plus it helps my SEO. So I'm very grateful to her for the help. I have a link to her photography website on every transcription, so I hope a few of you have clicked through to check it out.

    Oh, I would definitely love to see the video. I'd love to see some of Tom Dickson's pro skating. I think it's time to do a YouTube search. :)

    manleywoman, please let Fiona know how much the readers of the transcripts appreciate all the hard work, and how much we've enjoyed reading them. I know I have for sure. :)

    She lurks on FSU, so hopefully she'll see this herself. :) But I'll let her know. She's providing a real service to me, and I know to everyone else as well.

    Thank you very much! I listen to these podcasts on my morning walks, but would love to read through them for things I've missed.
