I first heard Penny Lang sing "Can I Come Across To You" way back in the late 1960s. Thanks so much for playing it, and reminding me where I can listen to it, as I've got all her records.

Loved to hear that wonderful song by Bruce Murdoch "Come Across to You" sung by Penny Lang and then Bruce singing afterwards. Thanks for playing these songs Mike! Best wishes to you and to Bruce - thanks again for a great song! The 'other' Penny (we met years ago in the Westmount Tunnel where I was busking and singing 'Come Across to You' :)
