175 … to look for America

Our first show specially assembled for the Fourth of July, and it was very successful, despite the celebration drawing away some of our audience.  There were still over 25 listeners, a very good number for a public holiday.

Our show was assembled by Hugh, our most English, nay, Liverpudlian member of the team.   He’ll be back,
