    Thomas, there was a comment today in the PL-880 Yahoo Group that newer PL-380 radios have a worse noise floor. Is this true and noticeable?

    A great program with historical significance. Thanks so much for bringing it to us.

    Someone please tell me, who was the lady singing “Early One Morning” at the end (in colour,) on the stage in the pink dress? Was it Millicent Martin? She was truly beautiful!
