So...I have, as some people have noticed, a section of my website devoted to a radio station I worked for way back in the eighties, KQAK. As part of that site, I try to keep track of where some of the people from the stations and the bands that we played are today. I discovered recently (last night) that Joe Pop-o-Pie, of the band the Pop-o-Pies was still around and, in fact, was selling a CD of his later work on CD-Baby. I ordered it, of course.
Today I got the confirmation of my orders shipping, possibly the best confirmation message I have ever received. I have duplicated it below for the amusement of others.

Your CD has been gently taken from our CD Baby shelves with sterilized contamination-free gloves and placed onto a satin pillow.
A team of 50 employees inspected your CD and polished it to make sure it was in the best possible condition before mailing.
Our packing specialist from Japan lit a candle and a hush fell over the crowd as he put your CD into the finest gold-lined box that money can buy.
We all had a wonderful celebration afterwards and the whole party marched down the street to the post office where the entire town of Portland waved 'Bon Voyage!' to your package, on its way to you, in our private CD Baby jet on this day, Tuesday, June 29th.
I hope you had a wonderful time shopping at CD Baby. We sure did. Your picture is on our wall as 'Customer of the Year'. We're all exhausted but can't wait for you to come back to CDBABY.COM!!
Thank you once again,
Derek Sivers, president, CD Baby
the little CD store with the best new independent music
It made me so happy.
