    Hi there,

    I have followed this all through out 2016, just wanted to say thanks for the previous 12 months. I think it’s important for fans to show their appreciation in case you think of not following up on more episodes in 2017. I really enjoyed this final episode, the cuban dance party was class. I really like that genre.

    Thanks again for 2016, I look forward to this in 2017.

    Happy new year

      Thank you Robert, it is always a delight to hear from listeners, and I am glad that you are enjoying the programs.
      FTIOM will be continuing in 2017; there is some really great new music in the queue.
