Week 199 – Putting A Seal On Melody

On this week’s show we have raided the archive and bring to you a classic broadcast played by that Master of Melody – Jospeh Seal.  Joe was very much associated with the beautiful Wurlitzer in the ABC Kingston-Upon-Thames and that is where this broadcast is being played from. So sit back as Joe takes you on a journey though melody and rhythm and a set of solid standards.

Week 198 – Twenty Two Years Ago

On this week’s show, Damon takes us back 22 years. “Why?” You might ask. Well, it’s the year Damon was born. It seems 1995 was an an excellent year for new releases and we hope you agree. Featured in today’s show are a number of wonderful artists including Simon Gledhill, Iain Flitcroft, Nigel Ogden, Len Rawle and many more!
