Happy Birthday: John Murphy

We here at Power Pop wish a very happy birthday to John Murphy of Shoes.

In the last year and a half, I have logged probably a couple hundred hours talking with John, who is a charming guy: funny and warm, generous with his time (though admittedly a little meandering in his conversation), and has a memory so detailed that his nickname has become "Johnny Gingko." I can't tell you the number of times he's filled in a missing plot point or mentioned in passing something which opened up a whole new episode (which is why I have to declare this thing done: it will never really be finished).

In any case, today is his natal day, and we wish him a good one.
