ave Reece is going to be my guest on The Eclectic Collection this Thursday 5-7pm. We’ve known each other for more years than either of us cares to remember and I’m looking forward to chatting with him about music and all sorts of other topics. I hope you’ll join us to hear some of his music but in the meantime, here’s a chance to get to know a bit about him.
