I stumbled upon a podcast about James Bond and was delighted to discover a subset cast that is reviewing the various original 007 Soundtracks. I'm about 75% through the Goldfinger review and LOVING it. I can't find an email address so send my thanks, but by listening, I am immediately back in the early 1970s with my first Heathkit stereo playing the Goldfinger LP on repeat as I work on electronics late into the night in my parents house, a wee lad of 15 and reading all the Bond paperback novels. Is there an email to send my comments directly to the host(s) of this wonderfully done podcast? Thanks.
