Week 255 – Beckingham back at Granada

It’s Tywyn time tonight and who better to show off the Wurlitzer than the ‘Wonder Boy Organist’ Keith Beckingham who was at the age of 14 taking the organ up on the lift and playing interludes to large cinema audiences! Well years later the Wurlitzer is still with us, now in the delightful Neuadd Pendre, Tywyn and Keith is reunited with the the mighty as he presents a show full of memories!
