I hate jazz, Podcast #1 (Nov 2017)

Scurrilous rumours are circulating about me. People are whispering behind my back. I go into a room and people fall quiet. They look at each other meaningfully and quickly leave the room.

I know what's going on. Someone's let it slip. They're all saying "He doesn't like jazz". Me! Niluccio! They're saying I don't like jazz. It's unbelievable. A slur beyond any imagining. In fact, I've even heard that I'm supposed to have said "I hate jazz!" HATE. Can you believe it? So with my musical reputation apparently now in absolute tatters, there's only one thing for it. Yep, a new compilation. It's called I hate jazz ....
