Host/Producer, Board Operator & Web: Mark R. Thomas
(I moved to the other side of the desk tonight for my 1st time as Board Operator. I really enjoyed programming the two CD players, running the mic and using the sliders to do voice-overs and crossfade from one CD to the next. "it was a real kick; a bright point in my World Music gig")
