    Wonderful show, thank you! Back in 2007, Mark flew to Canada to play piano for my Faerie Social and magic show. We also collaborated by writing some music together which never was released to date. And years later in 2012, I released a solo album entitled, Tapping Trees In A Trinket Box Of Treasure featuring Mark Wirtz doing spoken word on my song Tipsy. I wrote the song and play the instruments and art directed Mark from afar. It was a real treat to work with Mark. Also in 2007, I interviewed him on my friends radio show at CMFU McMaster University Radio as a guest DJ. It was a crazy show since the regular dj was so nervous, he got drunk for the show which made it rather surreal since he wasn’t wearing any headphones but would interrupt asking random questions. Mark deemed it the most fun interview ever. Unfortunately because the dj was not in his sober state, he forgot to document the show which was a bit frustrating so if anyone happened to listen and record it, a copy would be greatly appreciated. It was a two hour special. Cheers!
