Lindsey McKay: sales/marketing coord. for apparel co. and acts as princess at kids’ birthday parties (she also country line dances) from Corona, CA
Peter Ludden: HR worker who plays the guitar from Castaic, CA
It would be interesting if a Mary was on the panel in Lindsey’s place, and you’d get a pseudo modern day version of an old folk rock group from the ’60s.
