Hi Sheila, hi all. Couldn't listen last week before Saturday. The pronouncation of Eefje's Platenmaatschappij wasn't too bad! Platen = records, maatschappij = company and we put "tje" to something when it's small. So it means Eefjes small record company.

My reflections on my youth are necessarily distorted by time, but I don't think I ever even thought about "dressing like" as an activity in which one engaged, except c.1968, when I was determined to look like Peter Fonda in "Easy Rider."
