Week 175 – Spotlight On Richard Hills

On this week’s show Damon chats to international organist Richard Hills. Richard has bought countless hours of beautiful and fun music to the theatre organ scene and has been lucky to travel to world playing for fans. Recently back from the USA and from playing the World Premier of ‘Seaside Concerto’ he is certainly a busy man!
