This selection of records is my very own personally taste.
Not too many people are listening to this kind of music in 
'Good Old Germany'. I will do my best to bring some listeners 
to this kind of American Music and I hope I have the time 
and money in the near future to send my show via Real Audio.

Thanks to all for your interest and your inspiration!
