I had intended to do more updating this week but I’ve had computer problems (bless ’em), so I’m just sorting through things at the moment. I have quite a lot to post it seems plus I want to get on with uploading a few shows pretty soon too. In the meantime check out this tribute offering from ‘dan unda’. ABC to be specific. It’s narrated by one of those ‘fizzy’ dj’s but the content is sound enough from the bits i’ve heard to check the recording – which, incidentally I had a bit of bother getting sorted. There are sections where John is interviewed for the station so worth getting for that I think.
