    Hi Simon and Evita.

    First of all let me say that Lindy Hop, Jive and Rock n Roll dancing is very big in my corner of the world too. In fact me and my lovely wife go to lessons at a local village hall hop on a Thursday night and absolutely love it.

    I’ve been through a similar early route as you it seems. I started in music playing Trombone at school then progressed to the electric guitar and played in a band for a while (in fact I still do and some of the guys are original members). I’m also into photography and take photographs for live bands, dance schools and formal family portraits.

    This is a great podcast and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to you and Evita basically have a general chat about you and the website. I found myself talking to the screen of my computer and almost joining in the conversation I was that interested in what you both had to say. This site is very inspirational and I was pleased to hear that you are constantly working to tweak and extend the site to add more levels so there is always something new to work on.

    I loved the audio at the end and think Evita has a great voice so thanks for including that too.

      Hi Tony,

      Thanks so much for your comment, Evita got a real kick out of it! I really enjoyed having someone to talk to, instead of just talking into the microphone myself. So, what do you think about having her join me on a more regular basis?

      Even though she isn’t a guitarist, I think it might make the podcast more interesting to listen to.

      I would be interested in your thoughts.

      Cheers,
      Simon

        Hi Simon

        Yes I think having Evita join you on other podcasts would be a great idea. It would help the podcast to be more of a conversation. I’ve heard podcasts from other people where it is just them and more like a lecture; my mind soon wanders in those cases. Having a conversation type format would make things very interesting. Also, Evita knows you and I found that she was able to entice more out of you and kept my interest. Well done Evita, keep up the good work.

        Tony

    Hi Simon and Evita —

    This was a great podcast, even better than the first two. I agree that having a “conversation” is a more entertaining and informative format for podcasts in general, and that Evita has a great voice and a natural talent for the form. One note about “Twinkle Twinkle” — I’ve heard many people say that Mozart “wrote” that melody, but the inter webs seem to disagree — many sites ( https://www.woot.com/blog/post/the-debunker-did-mozart-write-twinkle-twinkle-little-star) want to debunk that particular point.

    Best,
    Dan

    Hi Simon and Evita,

    I watched Evita on YouTube (That Man). Wow, she is the BEST lindy hopper!! Me and my partner now watch it 1st thing every morning to start our day. Does she ever come down to Texas? We live in Houston and would love to see her perform.

    Warmest Regards,
    Laurie
