  1. Great fun ~ this reminds me / brings / to mind / is a fresh twist on , so many programs from past decades , whilst being uniquely its own . It has captured that comfortable feeling of familiarity . The nearest thing I can recall that had exactly that same effect , was “Casey Jones’ , a TV program from my childhood ~ which other than the investigative / adventurous aspects , draws no comparisons , just the same atmosphere..? But then , also other completely different headstrong individuals from the radio , like V I Warsawski and Dotty – both a million miles away ; but , with that same comfortable vibe .
    I think this is a cracking little “series..?” ~ if there were 100 episodes , I’d listen to them all .
