47:35 When the host of WMBR's popular Saturday radio program "Debbie Does Dallas" decided to change the name of the show, as well as his gender, he put on the line one of the most consistently popular programs on WMBR for over 8 years. Now the host of "Jake's Juke Joint", Jake Rich talks about the overwhelmingly positive response he's gotten to his transition, both on and off the air. But the ointment is not without a few flies, in the form of - for him - some unprecedented listener complaints. Is it his new gender, or something else?

Jake's Juke Joint can be heard Saturdays at noon eastern time on WMBR (88.1 FM) in the Boston area, and at online.
