first of all I have to apologize for the delay of my response. The postman put your package in our second mailbox
and none of us opened it until today - so I'm very sorry, that it takes so long to say >Thanky you<.
You're a great Bluesman, for my opinion. The CD shows a lot of your emotions, I guess. I'm sure, the CD will enrich
my program and my listeners will like it too. So I'm glad, to present it in one of my next shows. As usuall, you'll get
the playlist any time I use your music.
Thanks again and take care,
