  • Great stuff!!! Loved hearing what I was familiar with (“Nessun Dorma” & “Sous Le Ciel De Paris”) & enjoyed listening to what I had NEVER heard or heard of before. This is what IT is all about! Thanks!

  • scott

    strange, how is it that a recording I made 3 years ago at Mr Fenton’s request suddenly appears with a link back to my site?

    That’s Digital Flotsam 4 U.

    Many thanks P-Dub.

  • Hey, Scott. As you may be able to tell by this example, I have been rejuvenating some of the older shows which had been taken off line a couple of years ago. I did not forget one of my original podcasting buddies. Degitaru Fuyuzangai!

  • Hey there P-Dub, I have often thought about writing you, but never got around. I love all your podcasts, especially your stories, but this was fantastic. I just listened to it all and loved it all. Great taste in music. Thanks a lot – and great production of course.

    Thanks for a beautiful podcast – Tika Ngai was arresting. I am indeed a whisper on the tip of a leaf of a single twig at the end of a long branch of an enourmous multi-coloured tree that has it’s roots in the soil of Africa.

  • Hey PDub. I’m going back through and listening to all of these older shows and ran across show 62. Thank you so much for these musical selections. I found them to be awe enspiring, especially Polegnala e Todora and Tika Ngai. I am always amazed when my mind is opened to new music. It just propells me forward as an artist. Thanks so much for all the great work you do. Your stories and musical selections are moving and inspiring.

  • andrea bocelli is really a gifted man and he has the best sounding voice ever ‘
