The Gypsy Jack Boggle Show is now on Facebook and G+, as well as this blogspot.

So even if you are not in our very tiny broadcast footprint here in Western Victoria where you can actually hear the Sunday broadcast, please do stop off either physically here in Horsham or in cyberspace and say
Hello Richard and 3H listeners.
I’m not a stranger because I want to become a friend!”

You are welcome wherever you come from so long as you come in friendship, with peace and goodwill in your heart, in order to share traditional, folk and classical music as well as poetry. All to boggle at!

Make yours a ffffolking good week. Rjn
