The view from Ben Decter's studio one special morning. Sometimes rainbows show up outside my recording booth- at least when it used to rain in Los Angeles.

A much appreciated spot on the Warner Brothers' lot for Ben Decter during ABC's OFF THE MAP. It’s not every day I get reserved parking at Warner Brothers– so I thought I’d enjoy it!
