Phil are you the person that transferred our old cassettes (seven of them)
onto CD for the 2MBS-FM radio programme?? We played a Strove Tuesday open
air gig where the Rotary provided and sold pancakes to the passing crowd
for some charity. Is there any connection with Strove (pancake) Tuesday and
Fat Tuesday ??? Or maybe one just gets fat eating pancakes on Tuesdays !?
