We have an eye-opening interview with Richard John Thornton, author of At Hell's Gate, this time for your listening pleasure. April sounded shocking through some of it, but that's laryngitis for you. She's on the mend now, though, slowly but surely.  This is the write up of Richard's book from Amazon:  "Dedicated family man Curt Osbourne believes a diversion from the rigours of everyday routine will do him the world of good when he receives an invitation to a colleague’s 40th birthday celebration. A break in Prague for six working class lads promises a weekend to remember. Prior to the trip, the anticipation is at fever pitch and the banter and beer are in reliably plentiful flow. On arrival, the city unveils its exotic secrets to the visitors as they willingly immerse themselves in the unfamiliar environment. The mood is vibrant and laughter abounds. Yet unbeknown to those closest to him, Curt quickly lives to regret that his journey into unknown territory had ever begun..." Download and listen to this author interview.
