Listener Robert:

My friend Don here asks if I understand any of this. I say no, it's just music, and that I don't understand the lyrics of MOST music even in English.
  8:41pm
Listener Robert:

Don wonders about the audience for this, and I tell him I think most of them are probably regular listeners to Trans Pacific Sound Paradise, although depending on when you announced the program, there might be a few who tuned in specifically for African music.

Don just doesn't "get" free form and its listeners.
