Pretty good signal with a little noise. Thanks Mr. Poet for the show tonight.

Sorry I missed the King Crimson. That was some heavy music and I remember it well. I have an original LP from the late 60's. There may be some music left in between the scratches. Still, that is the good stuff and glad it isn't totally forgotten. Pink Floyd starting up.

Thanks for the show.
