MW, Canada, 15 August 2003

Because I lived in Maidenhead from 1983 till 1988, I clicked on the when I was actually visiting another site, quite likely by the same owner; that site provided very useful information about radio stations that can be captured within the M25. That site already impressed me with its information and its gentle, understated style.
The same relaxed style came back in the; not an easy thing to achieve if you live in south-east England. The 'tour' brought back many memories, some sad, most happy - and the eating and drinking guide made me realise that during a 15 year absence many things change....
Thank you so much for both these sites; they're wonderful and it's great that this kind of information is there for everyone to enjoy. And by the way: this is the first time ever I feel compelled to pay someone a compliment for their web-site."
