" I should also add that I suppose that my presence in so many panyards over the years must have rustled some masculine feathers but they have kept that a deep, dark secret from me Ė which is just as well since I donít suppose that I would have taken any notice!!" - Pat Bishop  Hear Pat Bishop in her own words.  A When Steel Talks exclusive...  A Person In Pan

Notes From A Pan-Dad  - "Why are they allowing this girl to mimic pan movements behind our glorious instrument?  As I got closer I was faced with the realization that she was not mimicking but actually playing.  And playing very well.  I approached this 'girl from Mars with total amazement.  Obviously she wasn't from Earth!" You've Come A Long Way... Baby!
