huh? has this show already finished or am i listening to it now?

Woe, this is eerie. I just remembered that your show was on, so I switched it on only to discover a track from the 5000 Spirits to which I was listening before I switched on your show. I guess it would have been even more impressive if I was listening to The First Girl I Loved, but alas I was listening to The Mad Hatter's Song. Still, this is unique.

Thanks for clarifying the actual station ID some minutes back. For a moment there I thought the radio on by mistake rather than iTunes. By the way, when typing in by (actual) mistake a moment ago, up came the home page for UM television.
