Week 233 – Porter-Brown at the Ritz

On this week’s show we have raided the archive and bring you another classic broadcast. This time it’s the unique sound of Reginald Porter-Brown, who was for many years resident at the ABC in Southampton, however on this occasion he’s seated at the console of the fiery Ritz Richmond Wurlitzer. So with just 8 ranks of pipes, one organist and what sounds like three hands…take it away Reg!
