I propose FFoH, Father of the (front of) House, although I also respect Mike's intention to exit stage left ad lib.

Do yourself a favour, wear earplugs at gigs.

Well the Worker Bee buzzed in to land at last having flown from Madrid (for some unexplained reason) and here it is in its new home.

You do get a lot for your 80 quid, I have to say, and initial impressions are that it's punching well above its weight. I feel a lot happier leaving it semi-permanently above Anne's computer than the Aston Spirit that preceded it. Money well spent, I'd say.

PS It's linked to the Macbook by a Blue Icicle. There's a guy on ebay flogging them off new for £25. Another bargain, I'd say.

I think I’ll get one Chap, at the price, who cares, and it’ll come in useful, I need a mic for my sampler, so that’s that solved.

See, once you upgrade one piece of gear it can lead to other upgrades/changes!
