I LOVE the!! I listen to it at work and at home but I have one problem, especially at work. If the volume is up loud enough to hear Jonathan's comments (which I enjoy)then the music is booming when it starts. Any way to combat this without having to constantly play with the volume?

Thank you so much for playing that long lost GEM "Give me time".
Doris Day sang it (again). It was written by Alec Wilder.
It was lovely to hear it again after a long "pause".
