Many thanks and a hug, dear friend, for this interesting tape (the lineup is impressive) and a couple
of others, but also for running such a nice site. Pls.don't become dispirited! There'll always be a
huge gap between the number of downloads and that of comments, it's been a fact of life since the
world of blogs begun: if you want to keep on blogging, I believe you'll have to live with that...
Anyway, I love much of the stuff posted here and will come back for more sometime soon.
In the meantime, please don't quit!
