Show production is temporarily suspended
My wife is very unwell with a recurrence of what we think is a viral infection from last year that has re-emerged – and no, it’s not Covid-19, fortunately. She has bad days and less-bad days, but it’s basically debilitating and so I must concentrate my efforts on supporting her and on various household chores etc. that before we shared. I will return to new shows as soon as Pauline recovers sufficiently, probably within two months.

There are two editions produced: the half-hour show which is broadcast on various stations is released every Monday at 12:00 CET, while the one-hour podcast is currently monthly, released around the middle of each month.

“I continue to be amazed as to how you produce such quality fidelity from the older vinyls.
My hearing is still excellent, so I’m not overlooking anything. The sound is awesome.
You are a Master. Thank you so much for all you do.”
Edward Burnett, St. Louis

A new header and a new shop front with no PayPal, which was charging me exorbitant fees. The new shop is now fully operational and now offers three methods of purchasing or donating – by registering, as a guest or by telephone.
