    Always good to hear Jon on ESC Insight – you struck gold when you added him onto the team!

    What an interesting set of songs, and how nice that Jon was able to congratulate Mal Pope all these years later! I rather like ‘Everybody’, and I have a sneaking admiration for Mal’s greatest hit – the original theme for Fireman Sam (in both English and Welsh). And I love ‘Chanteur de Charme’ too!
