    So interesting! I really enjoyed the interview with Adam Makowicz – what an interesing person and fabulous musician. I had heard him play before but this program showed him in a new light. The young man from Canada in Europe is doing a great job for others – full respect. I learn a lot from your podcasts. Congratulations!
