Don't have internet access very often, but I'm house-sitting for a while in a decent location. Anyway, I was happy to see I had an e-mail about Mark Coles' new site. Seems he is bringing back the World of Music (minus the BBC)for the internet and hopefully radio in the future. Listening to the first program right now:)
I really liked his opening track " Intru Alle Ronde" from Nidi D'Arac from the album Taranta Container — sort of dubbed out Italian accordion. You who like such things know who you are — easy to find on the 'net.
I think this is great news. Mark Coles did a fine job with WOM, and now he has a format which gives him more freedom and more time to play interesting stuff. He's just what one wants in a radio dj; he has wide interests and he communicates real enthusiasm for the music he's playing, just as Charlie did.
