    I’m afraid that these days I’m not as much into prog as I once was.

    As above, prog isn’t really my ‘thing’ these days but I think both your write up (blog) and your radio show are excellent.

    Default Caron and Fiona

    Steve, first of all let me congratulate you on your podcast/radio show...it's superb! On the strength of it (plus recommendations from Caron himself) I bought everything by 'Tiger Moth Tales' 'Big Big Train' plus the 'Swan Chorus' album from their respective Bandcamp pages. As a practically housebound (awaiting surgery) Prog fan 'Progzilla' is a godsend!

    Last August The wife and I stayed at Llwyn Helyg for our wedding anniversary. There for the first time, we met Caron and Fiona, and soon discovered our mutual love of Prog Rock - especially Genesis! We were absolutely knocked for six by the house itself - it's amazing! Pure luxury. The actual music room, and the Hi-Fi System particulary, have got to be seen and heard to be appreciated. I've owned plenty of top-end Hi-Fi myself over the years (Linn, Mission, and Stax products to name a few) But here you get the full 'Concert Experience' with a definite 'Wow' factor thrown in.

    Caron and Fiona themselves are two lovely people, who can't do enough whilst your staying with them - excellent hosts! They've now become firm friends and email often. We can't wait to visit them again. Any music fans who fancy a night or two away, appreciate a bit of luxury in a beautiful part of the world, and are looking to be spoilt, and want to listen to music being played at it's sonically best...then this is the place to go. I promise you, you won't regret it!

    It's a country house run on a bed and breakfast basis....but I could never call it a b+b....You've got to see it to believe it hifinutt. The wife and I have stayed at countless similar places over the years, this beats the lot....hands down.

    Absolutely brilliant thanks so much. As regular listeners know i play what we know as Prog tempered with many other genres of music to avoid being all Progged out and it seems to work well. Caron and i had a couple of late ones as described during which he played me some fantastic music which will feature in my March show. Keep on Progging sir and keep in touch.
