  1. Thanks, Guys – I managed to hear the whole programme tonight – Australian time. Thanks so much to Hugh for giving me some air play and great feedback!

  2. Have tried to listen to Folk n Stuff on catch up several times on different days but can’t get past the first few words of the Guest singer’s song at about 1hr.20mins.
