I think if you called BLAST and Bob Long is at the shop and not busy(you'll know this because he actually answers the phone) then he'll talk to you. Bob Long is actually a very approachable person. Just make sure that he is in a good mood, otherwise you get one liners like you would from anyone else in the world
