i like to have a job during my study .i am free most of my time

I have never been in a band but like music  and i listen to songs in my office or when driving car specially in English may i upgrade my language  and i frequently listen and repeat this podcast its very wonderful thank you British council

I grew up in the 70s eating bread and listening to Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath. So, I used to play the guitar (and nowadays I play it yet) seeking for playing - very badly to be honest... "Stairway to heaven"! Now it sounds like a classic, but when I was young it was really cool! I had got a band, of course: "The Mixture"!!!
I'm very happy about my music background because the music is a good way to keep in touch and sharing feelings with my students (during my boring physics classes!) and my daughter.
P.S. Thank you very much Adam and Rob for calling me "our old friend". They're only eight months I'm listening to your very nice podcast, but surely it's true... I'm an old man!

Hi Sirjoe777. Don't you think that when Adam and Rob refer to you as "our old friend", it means like a friend that have known each other for long period of time, instead as old like how old we are. Great day!

Yes, sure, I agree with you, Umi. You know, I was only joking!
Simply I found funny this sort of pun. Thank you very much indeed for supporting me from the far... Indonesia.
My best wishes to you.

Oooh silly me. Sorry for not understanding your joke, by the way I will be more careful when reading someone else comment in the future. Cheers!
