That was an interesting mixture! Unfortunately the audio cuts out a bit into the second hour - I was looking forward to the track off Bucharest Tango but it will have to wait for another day I guess.

Liz -
glad you like the music. At present, the show archive is as much of it as fits on one CD. Sorry it cuts off, but I hope you'll be enticed enough to do a little exploring. The Bucharest Tango CD is excellent, and perhaps I'll post a track from that to make it up to you.
