Your answers: If You Could Sit on a Bench & Talk to Anyone for 1-Hour, Who Would it Be?

March 2, 2018

It's one of those topics that just came up in conversation the other day.

Jim and I were talking about some of our favorite musicians played on WOLX, but especially our favorites who had recently died -- like Tom Petty, Prince, and Glen Frey.

A few people joined our discussion, which eventually turned to many of us saying, "I wish I would've had the chance to talk with them," and Jim adding, "I wish I could still have the chance to talk to alot of people!"

It made me think:  if I could sit and have a conversation with anyone for 1 hour, who would it be? Jim and I decided to ask YOU -- first on-air, and then on Facebook -- and your answers have been amazing! So many of you, like me, would love to have another opportunity to talk with someone in your family. Some of you have celebrities, alive and dead, on your list. And of course there's the musicians. 

Jim and I decided, after reading what we'd gathered from you, we couldn't keep this to ourselves. So, we are sharing your responses below, and thank you for being so thoughful with your answers. As Auliq-Ice says, "The traits, character or riches you may admire in another, are most times, secretly embedded inside of you."
