Indeed - streaming is so easy

I've put on 7 stone (84 pounds) since I've had it - lack of exercise to get retrieve said platter...!

i really do hope one day we get the fulllll show. it's hard to tell what... what... editorial decisions had to be made.

not that i don't agree with you. but it IS a ton of music to go thru and cut down in whatever ways
