Thank you so much Alan. Glad you are digging the podcast. I’m also happy that you like the old ads and PSA’s as well, I can listen to those all day. :) Thanks again!

Dear Ronaldo,I’ve enjoyed your show for some years now and never had a problem getting the podcast on the app. It cheers me up no end when all too often things are getting me down. I love the inserts of old advertisements and public service announcements. Keep up the great work. Alan Cunningham,Stockport,England.
