Oh, I forgot. Any chance of persuading Bill Nelson to come on? An articulate and intelligent chap, with an interesting and very diverse musical life story. Much underappreciated. Oh and he can play guitar a bit too, apparently.

Great chat with TH, but perhaps a missed opportunity to discuss the Yes thing. Maybe he didn't want to...

Jeez. She has an ego the size of a planet for reasons beyond my imagination. 2 pop hits written by somebody else as far as O can recall. The other podcasts are great. Thanks.
