  1. Hi David,
    Great interview with Ann, but I really have to say thank you so much for including the train sounds! Very satisfying indeed.

  2. David, the interviews in the new series are wonderful. Ann gave me a new glance at Fair Isle. Have a fair chunk of projects in cue right now but some day . . . Keep up with these fascinating interviews. They just get better and better.
