    Hey Marian,

    Enjoyed hearing you on the radio this morning on KALX-FM 90.7FM (Berkeley). FYI, I think some of that Taiwanese music you played might be in those Asian music stores around the bay (i.e. Japantown, SF Chinatown, SF Clement Street, Pacific Market in Albany, etc.). Maybe that'd be another way in addition to finding it online.
