@Tall Paul I'm good but busy thanks! The portablist turntable stuff has been on the up and up for a while now. It's fun to mess around with it, but I still pick the traditional turntable any day.

this is show one of the summer season - hence the Undertones cover art - classic Irish postcard pic of Killarney - here in Ireland (as Paul noted earlier) it is (as typically) raining hard this week making one forget its summer until the sun comes out here and there -
