On this week's show Damon looks back at some of the new albums released this year. 2017 turned out to be a good year for organists releasing new material all of which I have enjoyed listening too.
Its important to supports organists and concerts but everything you we have bought to you this year is done out of our own pockets. So if you have enjoyed this week's show, why not donate?
On this week's show we have no one waffling on in your ear. Its a full half hour of easy listening moonlight music, all strung together with no interruptions.

On this week's show Damon features the the sounds of the Wurlitzer's installed in Granada's Cinemas mostly in the London area. So we take you on a journey from Clapham to Woolwich on our Granda safari as we stop at seven Wurlitzers all with their own unique sound.
Tonight we take you back (almost) exactly 57 years to the Trocadero Elephant & Castle for a program of highlights from the closing concert. The 40 minutes of music is all presented by Alex Cambell-Gifford. So sit back and relax and bask in the sounds of of the Troc Wurlitzer as it was in the cinema. Its with thanks to the Cinema Organ Society that this Wurlitzer is now installed in the Troxy and is one of the finest examples of a Wurlitzer in the world.
