Listener comments!

Gordon Klassen:

The Prealudium and Allegro was written by Fritz Kreisler

Love the podcast...keep it up!
Dave Fischer:

Does everyone realise that "Come Josephine" was sung in the film "Titanic"?
Excellent show
Dave from Hove, United Kingdom
Colin and Ian Hancock:

I, Colin, who is ten love listening to your show. I am a large collector of Jazz78's and love the stuff on Diamond Disks. Ross Gorman is really cool, when he does the clarinet. Me, and my dad's favorite stuff is Harry Raderman and Phil Napoleon.
Jim Warner:

Wonderful show as always! This is the best show of early recordings, both in content and quality of transfers. The Uncle Josh series from February was outstanding. I've been collecting since the late 1950's, and I enjoy hearing these recordings that are simply not available anywhere else! I've listened through most of the archived programs--only have about 6 month of 2005 to go!!
justin k.:

count me in as another fan! i love your show!
Dave - UK:

Absolutely magical. This is the first time I have heard many of these tracks. Thanks indeed.

He's SERIOUSLY my great-great uncle!!!
Miguel Simarro:

Dear Sirs,
Samuel Gardner plays Praeludium und Allegro by Fritz Kreisler.
Kreisler was by then prefering not to publish him beeing the composer.
Thank you very much for this great show
