Week 192 – The Magic Of Maclean

On this week’s Chris Borg delves in the artistry of pioneering theatre organ technician Quentin MacLean. Mac’s musicianship is well loved by many organ fans world wide, his crisp playing on classical works is matched by his sense of humour on his novelty items. This show just scratches the surface of Mac recording output, and I hope you will enjoy the selection Chris has chosen to play!
