    Well done Les. I managed a no. 5 not long ago, so well done on getting the top spot. I've dropped by and added a rating.

    All the best

    Congratulations:) That's a superb achievement.

    I play the melodeon, and was invited to go to Russia in 1999 for a folk festival. Russian TV did a half hour programme with me playing. I was promised a video copy, but never received it. I may have made number one in the Russian TV charts, but I'll never know.

    Will you be at Shrewsbury or Sidmouth??
