Humbug!" you believe it....Foster does such a convincing turn from rancid old skinflint to a man giddy with redemption that one audience member cries out, 'That old geezer came alive!' " - Associated Press writing of Shawn's performance as Scrooge in a local stage version of "A Christmas Carol"

"A radio voice I wish we could hire full-time." - former station owner of small local station WSDE for which Shawn has done voice over spots.
