    Hi Guy’s
    Realy enjoyed listening to the Pod’ some of those songs obviously brought back memories and even song’s I’d almost forgoten about ! Next year I have some interesting gig’s in America & Australia and along with the book or should I say autobiography! thought it would be a good idea to have copies of the Pod’ as merchandise especially for America where there is still a big interest in the sixties. With your permission I would like to take download’s with me to add interest to my merchandise.
    Copies of the Pod’ will obviously be credited to your good selves and of course Strange brew.

    Best’s
    Mike Pender.
