One thought on “Playlist Conversations from a Long Marriage

  1. Thank you for listing the music used in each episode – I love Conversations From A Long Marriage, both Roger and Joanna are wonderful in it and the music is mainly my era and fits so well within each episode. I do hope it will come back for a 6th series.
