Week 232 – The Organist Entertains

On this week’s show Damon dedicates a full hour to The Organist Entertains, which as of Tuesday, is now off the air after 49 years in service. Damon looks back at some his personal highlights of the show’s long and interesting history, with plenty of special BBC recording thrown in too for good measure.
