288 Goodbye

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

Hi Andy!

Kymm! Tell me what episodes you’re missing. I will hook you up!

This was beautiful and wonderful. Thank you to everyone that contributed. It was so lovely to hear so many generations of the CP Nation represented. <3

How lovely to hear you all again.
It was a great run and I thank you all for your contributions and for sharing your excellent musical taste.


James! I am also missing some episodes, I believe. I may have to ask you the same favour.

Great job, Contrasters !
I think I’ll listen to it as 2019 will fade in a last breath around midnight (I was told)
