Notes & Reviews:

For over four decades I conducted the BBC's Light Orchestras in programs like Melodies for You, Invitation to Music, Music While You Work, Friday Night is Music Night and their annual International Festival of Light Music... Radio Clyde transmitted "live" my "Pops at the Philharmonic" concerts, and I also conducted the light orchestras of Europe; With the exception of the BBC Concert Orchestra, these orchestras no longer exist, so I have put together a selection of favorite pieces, hoping to bring back the glamour of the Golden Age of Light Music.
