    Hi Mr Bisha:

    Mainly I thought you’d like to know that you have a loyal podcast listener here in Dubai–and that you’ve cost me a few albums’ worth of dollars, thank you very much (!)

    Seriously, your show is a real treat here in this–if not cultural backwater, certainly no Vienna, let’s put it that way.

    I was just now on ITunes looking for the new Haydn, but—no luck. Maybe it’s just not up yet.

    Anyway, hope you are surviving your nastiest winter in memory. Now I must face the day (which is 22C and cloudless–poor poor me).

    Your Canadaphile, Kentucky-born, Dubai-stuck fan,

  • Dear Bob, Many thanks for the email, it’s always a pleasure to hear from people who are enjoying these podcasts. The Haydn should be up on iTunes shortly, if it isn’t, please let me know.

    22C and cloudless? That sounds pretty good to me right now.

    All the best, and thanks for listening.
