Plans for 2012

New Year 2012

After a fantastic first four months of the Yes Music Podcast, here is a very short episode for the New Year, with a few ideas I’m thinking of developing in 2012.

Please let me know what you think of the ideas.

I hope you all have a great 2012 and thanks so much for listening and getting involved in 2011!

Apologies that the sound quality is not as good as usual. I need to do a lot more experimenting with the new set up!

Normal service will resume next week, barring unforeseen circumstances…
