Wonderful stuff as always. Since you are a big Rheo's et al fan, have you heard of Dave Clarks's current project called The Woodshed Orchestra or his earlier Dinner is Ruined project? Also here's a recent article Dave Bidini wrote for The National Post...

Hi John - thanks for the encouragement - I didn't think this particular episode would be too popular given the mostly classical content but I am buoyed by your enthusiasm...

Thanks too for the heads up re Dave Clarke - I will investigate - and the feature from Mr Bidini is bang on re the music "business" these days - it's interesting to compare and contrast with his writing in "On a Cold Road" - the two kind of book-ending the popularity of the Rheos...

I love the Bidiniband's three albums too - just waiting for more from Violet Archers and Mr Tielli of course but it's all gone quiet...

Best to you and thanks for listening...
