Some very kind Youtube comments on last weeks show which shows how good the Linux community can be. All of them are much appreciated

Hey I really like the way you had your guest Co-Host, both entertaining and informative.

I really liked your interview with Martin Wimpress especially just before getting to meet him at Linuxfest Northwest! Great guy from a rural area like myself.

So I have a problem I thought I’d ask you about?

Hey has anyone else seen this: In Clementine the Spotify plugin no longer works correctly. I used to be able to access saved music and playlists. But now I can’t see my spotify playlists. It will however play an old saved Clementine playlist from before things broke.

Thanks guys, keep up the great work!
