Hello stranger! You've missed so much fun here too.

It's BBC4 so it will be repeated, a number of times. But just watch it on iPlayer?

Lot of iPlayer is blocked out here :( "Not available in your region" is a really annoying phrase...

There are ways, allegedly, to watch live British TV (and everything else) though :)

Ah very good . 1:25am for those that like staying up !
It was very good but could have been a half hour longer.
They didn't cover much about how he got into the 'scene' in the Laurel canyon days and the early albums like Closing Time. Some good interview moments though . Also saw Nitin Sawhney for the first time, some good comments.

Didn’t notice you had gone, just thought you had not posted for some time.
