  • I really enjoyed this second visit with Jeff and Jody, although I feel like a spy listening in on a private conversation. (“Bond, Dino Bond”) Jeff’s wonderful tale of becoming a pipe maker and Jody’s encouragement and his own path to the craft were so very interesting, reflective and totally entertaining.
    Good tune from Foreigner. I kinda lost interest in their music after album 4.
    With reference to your rant, I was reminded of a quote from T. S. Eliot, “Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”
    Thanks for a fun show.

  • Pretty good review of Wessex Campaign Dark Flake. It’s a shame that I probably wouldn’t like it.

    It was a pretty good show but my phone had some difficulty picking up Jody. Somewhere you had a racket and it was causing some problems. I could hear Jeff explain how he broke into the pipe making business. That was enjoyable but Jody’s got lost in whatever was causing that noise.

    And as for the music “Get off my lawn”.
