Thanks Peter. Much appreciated!

My mail address is Steven Gimbo, Radio Fly, PO Box 1, Tabubil, Western Province, Papua New Guinea.

I'd appreciate a few of the classical music too, if you can donate them.

Many thanks indeed! God bless your kind heart!

Proof (if needed) of the glory of Melanesian voices.

By the way, I remember my first Christmas in PNG living at Fort Banner. I had some friends around and was feeling homesick so put on King's nine lessons and carols. They were transfixed.

So I opened up the windows and put the speakers next to them and turned the volume up. Soon I found several dozen people in my front garden listening to the music, including members of the local Catholic church choir (my neighbour was the conductor) who started singing along spontaneously.

To be honest the fantastic sound of the Melanesian singers was better than Kings!

Steve - give me your mail address and I'll post you some CD's. I've inherited over a hundred from Dad and don't know what to do with them all (mostly classical)!

It would be great to know they had a second hearing audience in PNG. Same goes for anyone involved in radio in PNG.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

Thanks Peter. I'd like to get a copy for the listeners of Radio Fly.

Radio Fly is a small community radio station in Tabubil that provides music, entertainment and information to Western province and the surrounding Telefomin District of Sandaun Province.

We broadcast through both shortwave and FM. Please inform me how much it costs and how I can grab a copy. I have heard the Choir of Kings College Cambridge on LP and, yes, they sing like angels!

A Joyful Christmas and Blessed New Year to you and your family! God bless!

Thanks, Peter, happy Christmas everyone.
