On this week’s show we have raided the archive and bring you another classic broadcast. This time it's the unique sound of Reginald Porter-Brown who was for many years resident at the ABC in Southampton, however on this occasion he's seated at the console of the fiery Ritz Richmond Wurlitzer. So with just 8 ranks of pipes, one organist and what sounds like three hands...take it away Reg!
On this week's show Damon dedicates a full hour to The Organist Entertains, which as of Tuesday, is now off the air after 49 years in service. Damon looks back at some his personal highlights of the show's long and interesting history, with plenty of special BBC recording thrown in too for good measure.
