In my time over the last ten years on Talk Audio, (sorry, I never really liked the name change…) I have pulled off some cracking April Fool’s Day Japes. This is not one of them. The reason I had to wait, despite my workaholic boss being beyond excited at what he...

Editorial: MARCH…. WE GOT STUFF A COOKIN!

Mar 23 2018 00:00 | Adam Rayner in Editorials
Writing somewhat late in the month, I find myself in an emotional turmoil for a change! Yes, I get excited about things and do speak my mind and even get into trouble, neck-deep sometimes but it comes from the heart. And today I want to talk about change and the...

RRRrright! These are being raved about in the USA…and while I have not heard yet from the award-winning UK distributors of JL Audio about possible arrival dates for these, (we usually have to wait for the Americans to get theirs first, what with them being the locals and all…grrr! lol!)
