Winter flu

Apologies for the lack of new editions of the show on Diversity FM but I came down with a flu bug on the 10th of December. I'm hoping to be well enough to do a show this Friday the 24th but can't make any promises. I'm due to be away on the 31st but might see if I can find someone to cover for me.

If not, then I'm afraid that December will be something of a write-off but Off The Beaten Tracks will return in January. Thanks for tuning in during 2010. Hope you've enjoyed listening as much as I've enjoyed presenting the shows. And a big thanks to Wes Martin for his contributions and to the guys at the Diversity office and the YMCA without whom none of this would be possible.

Stay tuned to Diversity 103.5FM for more great music and talk shows over the Festive Season.

Happy Winter Solstice and Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
