288 Goodbye

Friday, December 6th, 2019

So many things drift off without a proper farewell. In the case of the mighty Contrast we couldn’t let that happen, so here for you is one final episode with the wholly appropriate theme of ‘Goodbye’.

On a personal note I would like to thank everyone who has been part of this wonderful thing over the years. You know who you are and I am truly grateful for every intro and song choice. Special thanks must go to the band of helpers who helped to curate episodes in the later years. Please do stay ‘imaginary friends’ with me if you wish. I am most easily found via my Instagram feed.

Take care of yourselves and keep up the Contrast … the world needs it more than ever.

Your imaginary friend, Tim
