James Relf emailed: "Mark, First off love the radio show. It's great the way this music always makes you feel alive. Anyway, I would like to ask how your site is made? Is it a Wordpress site or something else? Just curious cause I like certain aspects of it and being a web guy myself, well, it does not hurt to ask."
