    Great episode! Wasn’t aware of the new TK album, and just love the tracks you played so it’s going on the top of my to-buy list. You can count me among the diehard TK fans; I have all their previous albums, and had the rare privilege of seeing them play live at ProgDay here in the states back in ’02, shortly after Amy had joined the band. Hard to believe that was over 10 years ago!

      Thanks so much for the kind words! It’s always nice to hear that the show has informed someone about something that interests them enough to buy it, in this case the new TK album. Glad you love the tracks – it is indeed an excellent album and great to hear that it’s gone to the top of your to-buy list. And 10 years ago, eh? Time really does fly. It must be nearly five years since I saw TK play live, now that I think about it. I hope you’ll check out other episodes on the back of this one if you haven’t already. Thanks again for commenting.
