  1. What a fantastic night. I came up from Hull, especially to see Mark Steel!!!!!! He was sensational. I met him. What a lovely warm, compassionate human being. Love ya mark. The poet kate fox was outstanding, and so was the dead peasants. Ive g mailed them. I hope they can come up to Hull to give us thier brand of political songs. They will go down well in Hull.

  2. Elizabeth Ann Farrah-Atkin. I really enjoyed your show Mark, l have enjoyed over the years, you political style slant on the evil conseratives and Capitalism. How it is still here one never knows. Keep emulating goodness Mark. Your loved!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
