I was born in Chatham, Ontario, Canada in 1937. My mother, an American, was a housewife. My father would soon be going off for his 2nd war (WWII) as a bombing and gunnery instructor. He was in the R.A.F. in WWI, joining up when he was 16 years old.



I edited the code of an existing XML feed to create my own but there were bits I didn't completely understand, so I bought FeedForAll which made life easier.

To record and for editing I use Audacity  and Adobe Audition
