The MP3 format can be downloaded and played on Apple devices more readily than WMA.  It can be streamed from this blog post, or downloaded from HERE. The only editing of the MP3 audio  version was to eliminate a minute of whitenoise at the beginning of the session and pauses of more than a couple of seconds. The audio level of some questioners was also boosted.

Paton is introduced by Dean Singleton, executive chairman of Media News Group and a co-founder of the company.  The person first heard introducing Singleton is not identified in the recording.
