    Ahem, but a ‘longtime’ producer leaving after 6 years does not suggest that a ‘revolving door’ is operating on Mr Faine’s shift does it? Pretty slow one if it is …
    (Also, i love the Aston v. Harvey kerfuffle – great entertainment! )
    Cheers, Doug

    The first sentence – correcting Harvey’s English – contains a typo (I thing. Unless it’s ironic?!)

      Yes. There is a typo and also, who is Norman?
