Unbelievable!

An extraordinary show with extraordinary music, going now for almost 30 years and still going strong. What an achievement. Not to be missed.

Boundless

The longest running series of music I have ever followed... the music has been with me in darkest and lightest of times.

Here in lies the temple!

Thanks for your commitment and hard work keeping this alive.

As good as it gets

I love ambient tunes. My life improved vastly when I finally found Ultima Thule. It is hands down the ultimate resource for ambient music and is now my number 1 buying guide for ambient tunes from all eras. LOVE IT!!! Keep up the great work George Cruickshank and team.
