On this week's show Damon takes a look at the Magnificent 5 Manual Compton its the Odeon Leicester Square. This show features rare recordings of John Howelett, David Shepherd and Gerald Shaw, as well new material from a new CD, recorded by current house organist, Donald MacKenzie.
On this week's show we have raided the archive and bring to you another classic broadcast. Charles Smitton was very much associated with the two Manchester Wurlitzers, but in this case he's travelled across the country to Leeds. And where else than the Odeon with is 3/19 Wurlitzer. So sot back with and enjoy Charles' excellent musicianship on one of the country's best organs.
On this weeks show Damon takes a listen to the golden tones of the Wurlitzer now installed in the Brentford Musical museum near Kew Bridge. This Wurlitzer originally hailed from the Regal/ABC Kingston-Upon-Thames where it was made famous by Joseph Seal.
Love is very much the favour of this weeks show, what with valentines yesterday. So on this week's show Damon presents songs with Love in mind, particularly those lush romantic ballads that work so well on the larger instruments.
On this week's show we have raided the archive and bring to you another classic broadcast. This time played by that Duchess Master - Gerald Shaw. Gerald was very much associated with the beautiful 5 manual Compton in the Odeon Leicester Square and that is where this broadcast is being played from. So sit back as Gerald plays in his own imitable style!
