Peter The Lame
A blustery start, on a blustery day! Musical backdrop to grinding through boring physio exercises...

Manmohan Panesar (host)
Peter The Lame, hopefully you can maintain the tempo of the music as you plow through those monotonous physio movements! I hope all is well.

Manmohan Panesar (host)
Hi Vincent! I played four pieces with tabla this afternoon (I believe four). Which one? Or at approx what time of the show?

3:34 PM, January 27th, 2019
I think it was Vuly's Dance. It had guitar in it.

3:36 PM, January 27th, 2019
Manmohan Panesar (host)
Vuly's Dance had the Hammond B3 organ and some guitar so that may be it. Was he singing/chanting the bols - ta, ti, ga, na, ti, thin, dhin, na, etc?
