I do get some feedback but it's mostly from VRN's own people listening in.

We're not supposed to advertise the fact but the station can be heard outwith the grounds of the hospital buildings and I know there are people in other parts of Fife tuning in.

The main thing is that I enjoy what I do and I love playing these tracks, which might never be heard otherwise, except maybe on Radio 2's Sound of the Sixties or Mark Lamarr's alternative Sixties. I'd love to do a podcast of the show but that would breach various regulations, which is a pity.
