Thanks to Daniel and Rebsie for doing their respective interviews, to my engineer without whom the interviews would not happen, and to you the listeners. Send me comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). See you for the next episode when, after a month of interviews, I’ll be returning to normality (such as it is!) and I’ll have lots more great music to play for you, including new tracks from Phideaux, Antique Seeking Nuns, and Pia Silvi.
