I realized to last night that I don't care to play pan no more. It's been awhile that I've felt this way but last night during the Carnival Village Opening is when it really sank in.
So as of May 1, 2005 I, Randolph Richards will enter a partial retirement and hang up my bass sticks till at least next Carnival.
