Hello everyone, this is David here, from what is laughingly being referred to as holiday…although hopefully with the approach of Christmas really will become holiday! I just wanted to say Hi, and say that I’m still not sure when I am going to come back but I suspect it’ll be later rather than sooner…but also to say that a few people have got in touch with me about guest episodes. So with a bit of luck there’ll be something on the airways. This one following is from Isaac Meyers, then. Now when I was a lad, I ate the James Clavell books, I just ate them. The best historical novels bar none, makes even the beloved Bernard look like a no hoper. And Shogun induced a period of Japanese mania as I remember, and through that I learned that the base story was true, about some English bloke tipping up on the shores of Japan and making a go if it all. So when Isaac contacted me and suggested a guest episode, I was more than delighted. So, here it is, and there’ll be more soon!. . .
