Cheers Mike!
I'm a big fan of Young's, not everything he does mind, but a fan nonetheless (he's a crazy Canuck too y'know!)

I got a bunch of NY related goodies last Christmas, including a 25th anniversary compilation of most of the Bridge School Concerts. Very exhaustive stuff, but very entertaining. I'll try and squeeze in the broadcast.

Good call! Thanks!

Sorry to say I've missed the broadcast. Been too  busy to even check the forum. I've worked with handicapped children for quite a while teaching and accompanying. Very rewarding! Such fun to work with them and the parents and other teachers were such an inspiration. So much hidden talents that come to the surface and thaught me lessons in empathy. I cherish these memories to this day. (still meeting some of my pupils after 20 years regularly!)
Wish it was still funded but... Oh well..
