Aligreto seems to have gone a bit quiet. I enjoy his contributions and our communications. Hope all is ok.

Thank you for your kind words and yes, all is OK, thankfully.

Likewise. He came over as a nice chap, and as a fellow enthusiast of the LP record it's a bit lonely with him not being around.

I have returned to offer you my unequivocal support as a fellow vinyl lover  8)

aligreto: I'll always be grateful for his patience when trying to help me listen to Bruckner.


I do remember the correspondence all right but I do not remember it as being anything of a chore on my part. You were receptive and I hope that you benefited from any small help that I may have offered.

Welcome back, Aligreto!

I haven’t seen NikF in awhile. I hope he’s doing okay. Hopefully, he’ll be back soon. I still, also, lament Dancing Divertimentian. I hope he returns at some point.
