 I am delighted to announce that my music and lyrics blog has reached 20,000 pageviews! 

 I started it in 2011 because I felt a real urge to share with others the songs and artists I respect and to give my opinion on musical issues. Four years later, I feel I have succeeded. 

 Highlights have included choosing songs for Radio 2, interviewing The Kennedys and Eddi Reader, meeting Edwina Hayes and Kieran Goss and attracting the attention of Martika, Paul YoungJohn Illsley and Mark O'Connor

 I want to thank all of my readers for your support. Here's to another four years and hopefully many more views!
