  1. Bob..!! Or… you know, Colleague-of-Bob..!! A very swift one, this, from Way, Way Over The Pond… to thank you for playing The Chickpea Darlings on last week’s show (which took a whole week to wend its way into our collective consciousness… how did *that* happen..?). Most, most kind. Give our love to San Francisco… it’s been 19 years since we last visited, but have always thought of your chowder-based diet with great fondness. And… good luck getting rid of You-Know-Who, You-Know-When. He’s a dreadful rotter, isn’t he..? With all kindness, best wishes and top marks for a top show… Huw xx.

  2. Thanks, Huw! (I’m not sure how this system works. It seems quite possible you won’t receive a notification of the existence of this reply.) I’ll try to let Frisco know about your love for it — or at least I’ll play more Chickpea Darlings in the near future. And yes, we’re all longing for the day in the near future when that awful fucker — and his congressional enablers — are flushed down the electoral toilet, hopefully on their way to prison.
