Pour info, il est Impossible de télécharger le podcast sur le site de Mellotron. Pourquoi ne pas mettre le podcast sur votre site? En tout cas un grand merci pour le travail accompli depuis toutes ces années. Il me manque les 3 premiers mix pour avoir la collection au complet, je ne désespère pas. Respect to the maximum to Paris Djs.
