He seemed to really dig "Do What You Do". and he's invited us in to do a session if we make it over.

I know I speak from the whole of The Good Intentions when I say many thanks for playing 'Neil Young' on your last podcast.

Thanks so much. The support is *very* appreciated, especially considering how many albums must flood your mailbox. Patrick Bloom

I quite enjoyed your show again this week. Especially Hank the 3rd, John Hartford (Big Blue Balloon was sublime), John Prine (as always) and above all Tracy Grammer was an amazing new artist for me. Really stellar song choices. I heard Ricky Ross' "Pale Rider" last time didn't I? I like that tune a lot and will have to check out more of his stuff. And once again thanks for including me in the mix. It's an honour. Keep me posted (even if I'm not on the show, of course). You've turned me on to some excellent music! Kirk Adams

In some respects, my programmes operate in something of a vacuum. I dont read the trades much and generally dont get plugged. Consequently, Im somewhat sheltered from whatever hype is going on. I generally pick up a vibe about an album from Maverick, through a few trusted observers, or by word of mouthtalking with musicians and gig-goers about people they like, maybe getting a call from Bob Paterson about a new artist hes found, sometimes discovering a name on Karen Millers internet playlist, or reading the postings on my website notice board (www.bobharris.org). It seems to me that were all on the same side. Bob Harris

Hey there, Great show. Thanks for making me part of it. Randy Thompson

Wow! Thanks for playing a track from my new CD...much appreciated! Garry Segal

Your show is wonderful. I love it. I have been downloading and listening to you for a full year now. You have made a huge difference in my life. You bring sunshine when it rains, relief from the heat. You bring me to dance when there is no other sound reason to celebrate. You are wonderful, old shows or new. You fill my ears with wonderful music. Thank you for what you do and how well you do it. Tony

just listened to this weeks show and you were right how nice that song by eddi reader, on rough trade as well.. you must work very hard to keep this quality up still lovin the show! Vicki

I thoroughly enjoy your show and it's the only "radio" I listen to down here. Alan in New Zealand

Hi Karen..discovered your show thanks to the Sunday Times, like I expect loads of others. Really like it. I'm working my way backwards and have been listening to your Christmas show. Barry, London

I just discovered the Millers Tale and what a great broadcast it is Karen..lots of fantastic music. The one about the credit card was fun and very pertinent to the debt crisis...I've never herd of them before though Old Man Pie!? And the Neil Cleary track I liked too. I'm glad I came across your show. Steve G

I was made aware of your Miller Tells Her Tale podcast by the article in the Sunday Times in January and since discovering it I am completely hooked. You do a marvellous show which has introduced me to many previously unknown artists and even encouraged me to buy some of their CDs - bought Eric Taylor's The Great Divide last week - fantastic. I have listened to your shows again and again (many on my mp3 player whilst hillwalking!) and never tire of the music. Without wishing to swell your head too much, as far as I am concerned, you rarely play a track that I don't like - what taste eh! Brian, Stirling

I just got back from a camping trip. I got stuck in a blizzard on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and listened to your podcasts on my ipod while waiting in my little tent for the weather to clear. Your great choice of music got me through the freezing night. Good job! Mark, USA

I recently stumbled across your podcast, and absolutely love it. Chad, USA

Hi love your eclectic musical selection . Chris, USA

I just wanted to say what an excellent show you put on; despite being a Bob Harris fan for years I only discovered a link through to you recently and Ive started working my way through your old shows. Theres some great music there and Ive already added a few to my immediate wish list (like Bob, pretty much everything you play would go on my wish list). Thats it really; thanks and keep up the excellent shows. Dave, UK

I have recently found your excellent show in iTunes, and just wanted to say "hi" and tell you to keep up the great work. I have enjoyed listening to your shows very much. Even though I live in Texas, I have discovered some new music from your show that I've started to look out for. David, Austin TX

Hi Karen, I have just found this site through a link from "Brand New Country" Scotland. Great show, Mark Erelli track "Passing Through" is beautiful and Jim Lauderdale is marvelous Dessie, Ireland

Just wanted to express my congratulations to you for putting out such a fine show - 173. I think it's the best you've done to date and it flows really well. I particularly enjoyed the segment that included Brady Harris, Robert McEntree and Datri Bean. Despite Brady reminding me of the Beatles (who I've never liked - weird I know, a music fan who has no Beatles albums amongst his collection) I thought it all gelled really well together. The whole show is just great. I'm inspired to greater things for my hospital show listening to you. Each show you do makes me want to check out a new range of artists. This is exactly how music shows should be. You should be very proud of yourself. - Phil, UK

A friend told me about your podcast which I downloaded for the first time this weekend. It is exactly what I have been looking for - music that you just don't hear on the radio apart from on Bob Harris's Saturday night programme. Richard, UK

Hi Karen. You have made quite an impression on me. Your research is truly exceptional the songs you come up with are really terrific. In fact, I have just purchased the new Jeffrey Foucault, an earlier Troy Campbell, the Sorentinos and the new Darden Smith (Field of Crows if you havent yet heard, I think you will like very understated). All because I heard these artists on your show. I also appreciate that you play my stuff but I would listen in regardless. And I get a kick out of the cadence in your voice very self-assured but not afraid to be original. You also arent fawning. If you dont like something or have a reservation, you say it (but you have a diplomatic manner). Integrity is a tough thing to hold on to. You are doing a good job Gerry, Canada

Your site is a fabulous resource for fans of Americana, I'm staggered at the amount of work you've put into it. It really is good. I've listened to and enjoyed your best of 2005 and 2006 series. I especially liked Loomer who I'd not come across before. Ian, Leeds

To tell you the truth you don't play a dud track on any of your shows, Ian, Wales

You are a shining star in the firmament of my musical universe! Ivan, USA

Enjoyed the show very much , you have now introduced me to more "new" musicians than Bob H (well, almost), so thanks plenty John, USA

Just discovered your website - Brilliant podcasts. Keep up the good work. Keith, Dundee

I just came across your site while looking for Idgy Vaughn. I would like to tell you how great your podcasts are. I am a great fan of Texas and Americana Music. Being from South Texas (Corpus Christi), I am familiar with a lot of the artist you play. I am really enjoying hearing new bands from other countries. You are doing a superb job, I look forward to your next show. Kelly, Texas

I've only just found your podcast (episode 172 - definitely not an early adopter!) - really wonderful stuff, and I've already bought The Pull by Kreg Viesselman having heard him on episdoe 171. I can see my CD purchases increasing somewhat! Wonderful show - keep up the great work... Lee, UK

As ever, your show is a must play for me - keep up the good work! Apart from the effect on my bank balance (all those CDs I have to buy - not so good!) your show brightens up an otherwise dull commute into town. Lee, UK

I've enjoyed your podcast since last year and have discovered many gems on it, particularly folk like Mark Erelli and Ron Sexsmith Doc, USA

Hi - just to say thanks - for not giving up when Spydaradio closed, I really enjoy the selection of music you play. Show 133 was a great example and it along with some previous ones kept me company on a flight to work in Athens recently. I think I first came across your broadcasts thru The Brand new Opry site over a year ago. I must have bought 25 to 30 CDs in the past few months based mainly on stuff I hear on these shows. Malcom

I have just found your website & I think it is fantastic.I'm a big fan of "indie" & unsigned artists & just love listening to music in general Mike, UK

I was overjoyed to find your show - great stuff Mike, USA

.....to have just heard show 145. I will have to find time to hear the rest! Keep on recording. Brilliant! Will be recommending you to many other friends, just incase they did not read The Sunday Times this week. Patricia

I heard Bob Harris mention you the last couple of weeks on his show. I have been listening to Bob avidly over the decades, appreciating all sorts of music, and am always drawn to listen to people who broadcast with passion. And so... went and gave your show a listen today - really informative and well presented for sure! Paul, UK

I am currently listening to your show and considering this isnt my usual choice of tunes I am really enjoying it. So considering it doesnt take much to send an email and I know how good it can be to get praise on radio, I thought I might as well email you and say, good tunes, good show and keep up the good work (now I sound like someones Dad) Paul, UK

Thank you for the show. First one I've ever herd from you.Found by good luck I think - Peter, UK

Thanks so much for your show. It is really my all time favorite. The only podcast I always listen to at least 2 times! Steve Switzerland

Just discovered your show - I'm a sort of download/podcast newbie (I'm very old! - Listened to a Loomer track on Bob Harris - Googled them to find out more - found your site & your podcast shows - I'm still here listening about 4 hrs later - great tracks - special mention for The Last Town Chorus - thought I'd misheard when you said a Bowie song coming up next - one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard - Great work - I'e bookmarked the site so I can't lose it Mike, UK
