Fun – as ever. Tony’s enthusiasm kept me from “dropping-out” of (Goodmayes) Hospital Radio [on the web as TheJumboSound.com] several times. I’m still there on a Monday night at 8pm (with Gladys Knight tracks). I adopted his mantra of “smile – it’s difficult NOT to be happy then”. Good work – much praise – Shame that the audience’s questions at the end were cut-out of the podcast. Tony only spoke what I heard YEARS before, that “if you want continuous music, go listen to a jukebox”. I am POSITIVE, but adversity gains attention, sadly.
