On this weeks show we venture to Suffolk and to the Cotton Mechanical Musical Museum. This 90 year old 2 manual Wurlitzer was originally installed in the Leicester Square Theatre, London So in celebration of this fact, we present to you Cotton’s resident organist David Ivory. Davids going to plays a ‘traditional’ programme which includes a selection of Gilbert & Sullivan tunes, the waltz- Village Children and many more!
