Speaking of real time versus not - Joe, consistent with my habit of eventually catching up on parts of your show I missed live, I wanted to say that I really really like your opening synth set from last week, which I finally listened to days later.

I recommend it to any others who haven't heard it yet. Some really prime synth textures.

Avatar 11:56am Joe McG:

Many thanks, Jeff. And thanks to everyone who listened and commented today. Have a great week, all.
