  1. With all that excellent training you got at 2mce(!) you'll be a top jock very soon. Good Luck Mal.

  2. Thank you. I'm really looking forward to it. Now I've got four programs ready-to-go already... gotta have good preparation, you know :)

  3. I was 10 when this came out. My brother, who was 18 was waiting for it with some anticipation. I remember he had a roneoed information sheet about the album - with a track listing, well in advance of the release. When it finally came out we sat down and listened on the old mono record player and were blown away. Songs like "A day in the life" were revolutionary at that time. AS loved "For the benefit of Mr Kite". I used to fantasise about playing sitar... something I eventually managed to do.

  4. Thanks, Greg!

    Listening to this album, for me, immediately makes me think of my brother... I used to play his original black-label Parlophone-label vinyl copy [complete with the cut-out inserts and record sleeve], that my only-brother (10-years older than I) had... an authentic 1967 copy! Amazing!

  5. My first program as a presenter went reasonably well, I thought... a few technical 'hiccups' occasionally, but that's to be expected - it was only my first time, after all! heh heh.

    Practice makes perfect... well, more smooth! It's quite interesting... I'd done all my 'practice' in Studio 4, and the actual program is transmitted out of Studio 1... they are very similar, but just slightly different enough to throw me out for a split second every now and again... buttons in slightly different places is all. It's no biggie... just something to get used to.

    But yes yes - "A good time was had by all".

  6. I really enjoyed my first program as sole presenter, despite a few minor 'technical' hiccups along the way... that was to be expected on my 'first time'!

    It made me smile... I've been doing all my 'practise' in Studio 4, while the panel in Studio 1 [where the program is broadcast from] is very similar but slightly different-enough for me to hit the wrong button now and again... but it's all a fun learning process.

    It's all good :)
