    Steve what an enjoyable programme this was and such a fitting tribute to Reginald Dixon who was born 112 years ago.
    He gave so much pleasure to so many people over the years with his playing and still continues to do so to this very day.
    I did enjoy this programme so much and hope that you do not mind that I have shared the programme on Mr Blackpool Reginald Dixons Facebook page for all to listen to.
    I do enjoy all you podcasts and keep copies of them all on my computer to listen to again.
