Kelners Blog
Posted by Martin "condensed milk" Kelner on Apr 10, 2014 - 9:25:25 PM

I got the following message via this web site from one Philip Balmforth:  


"As a Radio Leeds listener, Where are you? you are missing from Radio Leeds and have not updated your 'blog' for ages"


As this Balmforth seems to be taking my absence somewhat personally, and has bravely identified himself as a Radio Leeds listener, I feel the least I can do is respond....
