The Bert Show was floored yesterday – first we had a phone call from President Bill Clinton, and then we were honored to be able to speak with the First Lady, Michelle Obama, who called in to thank YOU (the Bert Show listening community) for bringing in over 650,000 (remember our original goal of 400,00?) letters!
One listener, a Marine veteran, wants to hire other veterans from all 50 states!
The Big Thank You Send off: you guys sent in over 650,000 handwritten letters!
