Hi Adam,
Quick comment to let you know I love the podcast, always a highlight when I see it plop into my itunes feed.
Louis is a great guest and I think Louis doing Baccara's I love to boogie must be my favourite podcast moment ever.

Cheers
Robin

A note about Comments

Hello Podcats and Blog friends,

I wanted to let you know that comments have been disabled on the blog and the app for the time being. This is not because of anyone posting anything abusive or anything like that, but just because I seldom get round to moderating the stuff that comes in as promptly as I should, and rather than irritate people who don’t understand why their comment hasn’t been posted, I think it’s easier if I just switch them off. Sorry about that, but time is scarce and I’m disappointed to discover I can’t do everything! And if you’re one of the people who submitted a comment and it hasn’t been posted - sincere apologies.

Best wishes

Adam
