  1. David Says:

    thank you for putting up the jazz program – I had dug around the darling harbour website unsuccessfully looking for it and given up – a quick google found your list which I’ve now printed out for handy reference, so thanks !

  2. David Says:

    on second thoughts … I assumed the undated program on your website was for the 2009 jazz blues festival, but when I printed out two different pages and found no correlation, I started wondering – and went back into View Source for your webpage and found, yes, ’2008′

    So – thanks but no thanks for putting up a great copy of last year’s program and wasting half an hour of my time !!!
