Smith states, “This was a very special moment when I genuinely expressed to Wendy my apology. I remember hearing her on her college station WRBB. I thought that she was compelling at that time, which was in 1985. To date, I just do not remember why I rejected her. If I had to do it over again, I am certain that my decision would be totally different. A true lesson learned.”
