Best wishes for a speedy recovery Charlie.

Rock & Roll es Espanol, David's quite right...

Looking forward to hearing from you on the forum and the airwaves when you're back up and about.

Hasta la victoria siempre!

Just listening again in these last minutes before this great programme floats off the air

So pleased you chose to play the R U N N Family singing 'Hatichina Wekutumba Naye' again, recalling the heroic Samora Machel. A haunting piece to leave us with.
[I'd be interested to know where you first heard them?]
And how good to see the familiar Home page of Sound of the World up on screen again.Liz.

Charlie - as usual I am a beat or two behind the pulse of the news and had not heard of your ill-health.

I usually record your programmes to play back at leisure and, what with Christmas and a busy start to 2010, I have fallen behind. So I'm yet to hear your final WO3 show. I'm both looking forward to it (you are always at your best when you let the mood take you) and dreading it for the obvious reasons.

If it helps I have enjoyed your company in the time since I discovered your shows and you have led me down paths I would have never expected. I love your ping pong sessions and have always enjoyed hearing some of heroes & heroines relax in your presence as well as introducing me to the music that moves them. Most of all I guess I like the fact that you approach music in the same way I do - if it moves me it is OK never mind the science, history or whatever. Here's hoping we can renew our radio relationship.

Take it easy old friend and get well soon - my thoughts, wishes and (what passes for) prayers are with you.

Well, it seems I am even further behind the beat, off the pulse or just plain not with it! Only just found out about your ill health Charlie and the fact that you won't be on Radio 3 any longer...I was idly wondering why you hadn't popped up in a while but I guess I was fondly imagining that you were off on a sojourn somewhere picking up some great tunes to share.

I've followed your career on and off since the Radio London days years ago - when I returned from doing a VSO stint in Kenya a number of years ago there was no one else around playing the songs and great music that I'd been privileged to hear there and on my travels in the wider region. You brought back incredibly happy memories but even better, kept expanding my horizons further and further so that I really did begin to feel part of a very special and lucky club. I owe you big time for that.

I'm really sorry to hear of your ill health - my best wishes for a speedy recovery. I hope that all the good luck messages here and elsewhere go some way to making things seem just a little better.

Cheers Charlie and all the best.

Phil
