On this weeks show Damon remembers Steve Tovey with a programme of tracks which were all favourites of Steve's. We sadly lost Steve last year by Cameron Lloyd suggested I waited until now, as last week would have seen Steve's 70th Birthday. Steve was quite a character who I was pleased to have met on a number of occasions and he was always full of enthusiasm so long as there was ENTERTAINMENT!
This weeks show we feature the sounds of the the Virtual Theatre Pipe Organ. And who better to demonstrate the sounds of the various samples than Iain McGlinchey who helped found Paramount Organ Works. Iain's dedication to sampling organs is second to none and on top of that this half hour also proves his talent as a fine organist.
On this weeks show James Mclean presents the first of his monthly series where he will be getting to know you. Because this is the first show we though you'd like to get to know James a bit better and get an insight into what got him interested and what he likes.
