SOME ITEMS BROADCAST DURING 1998

INTERVIEWS
by Andrew Rennie

Most interviews were recorded stereophonicly with the intention they be heard on home hi-fidelity stereophonic radio equipment. We recommend you listen to these downloadable audio files in this way. If you choose to listen with headphone or earbuds you may find the left-ear / right-ear effect unpleasant.
