    So nice to hear such a varied programme of my good friend, Reg.
    I must also compliment you on the sound quality. Brilliant.

    Thanks, Peter. I try only to use those tracks that are high quality, although sometimes I do use some enhancement techniques and/or equalisation to get the best sound. Credit goes also to Ross McNeillie who supplied some of the tracks and much of the playlist for this edition.
