On this week's show Damon follows in John's footsteps with some more contrasts. The title of this week's show points to the last two tracks - The Continental and quite possibly the biggest divide in the theatre organ world...!

This weeks show Damon make a return visit to one of the newest home Wurlitzer Installation - This being in the home of Barry Earl in Leighton Buzzard. This fine 3 manual Wurlitzer is sounding even better than before thanks to some hard winter maintenance. This time we present young organist Declan Poole with his section of music.
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.
