Hello James,
I listened to and loved the 'Introduction to Jazz' program you did with Sara McDonald on Nightlife, Friday night, 5/6 May.
I missed the first half though and am unable to activate the program link. Have you done any programs like this previously that I can listen to and hopefully download?
