Zither-Banjo on German radio

I was interviewed before Christmas by a guy from a German radio station about zither-banjos. Parts have been included in his program which is going out on Sunday. You can listen to it online: http://www.dradio.de/dlf/
But because Germany is one hour ahead, it starts at 14.05 pm English time.

Hello David, I always think about you over in the UK and how you are doing. I don't get on Skype much anymore. (we use to do text chats together on Skype a long time ago) so it is good to be able to catch up on what you are up on here on this site. When I have a chance, I need to develop my homepage more.
Take care - Charis

Hello David,
thankyou for your friendship offer, I had a wonderful day at Ridgway and, I'm always impressed by the standard of playing ta these events, hopefully I may play one soon, (it,s the red light syndrome) at home it's easy, elsewhere, difficult.
May I add, I liked the sound of the Clifford Essex banjo, it has a good tone.
Hope to see you at Bretby,
Regards, Denver.

Hi David

It was through a google search by one of my sons that we came across this site in the first place. We`are trying to trace back through the family tree and he came across it as a result of the Google search. One of my brothers has a CD or something that had mentions of my father on the Cover of the CD. I have not seen the CD or the cover but I have read somewhere that Rob Murch was taught to play (I think by my father but I am not sure). My first name is actually Kenneth but I never use it as my father named me after his great "Banjo Idol" the one and only "Tarrant Bailey Jnr" my second christian name is as you might guess Tarrant but it got shortened to Tarry by my parents unless they were annoyed with me as a child then it was always "Tarrant" or even "Kenneth Tarrant".
Kind regards
Tarry Barriball

I really enjoyed Backwell. A bit of an outing for a bass banjo. The jacuzzi in the hotel bedroom was huge, nect to the bed, asnd would have taken about three hours to fill. It WAS the honeymoon suite I know, but Mrs P had her own agenda, which we don't need to go into now.....
