Hello, I play the drums too, I play at my church on Sundays, and I'm still learning to play better and better.
It always has something to learn in your life.

I can't play any musical instruments and i  haven't sung in front of a crowd because i am too shy. However, i like listening to music. Have you ever listened a song about our country_Vietnam, our capital_Hanoi.? If you haven't, let listen a English song about Hanoi: "Hanoi boogie" . I am sure you will like it because it is so cool. 
About the next episode, i think that Tess and Ravi will talk about British tea. Is that true? I hope so.
Is there any mistake in my comment? I hope there is not.

but where is transcript??????????????

The transcript is in the usual place, under 'Instructions and Downloads'.

A friend of mine who told me about his brand called "Milky Way".
When he was a young guy had joined a brand made up by seven members .
One of the members of the brand was a pretty girl and the rest were guys.
The pretty girl who had a lovely voice and keen on singing, so that six guys discussed how to near her closer and closer, one of them came up with an idea was making up a brand.
He was playing guitar in the brand and the girl was singing.
Many years past, they all separated different places and never met again.
How romantic they were , a brand just for their goddess.
Best wishes

That's a romantic story, thanks mac. I think it's a good enough reason to start a band!

Hi everyone!!
I loved that podcast because it makes me remind me... I'm studying in a music school to be  a professional musician so I love it, specially classic music. I play TRUMPET since 12 years old and now I'm 17. Music make us feel all feelings  you can imagine through the sound... Beautiful isn´t it? I have a band too and there I can make some cash. It´s like my first ''job''... But beyond the money, I do it for the music.
So, I like music very much and I think that all people should like too because listen and make music bring us a very good sensation!!
