Theresa Barrett ~ Thanks Bosco, Yes Max was a good friend and thanks to him my sister and I got our own half hour program on Radio Pakistan playing a selection of songs that we liked. That was in the early 70’s. I still have the two shows taped on cassette. I also have a pic of Max and I dancing at your sister’s 21st birthday. I should post it on the site! RIP Max.
