There’ll Always Be an England

George sent me the following email message the other day. He often listens to the internet stream of BBC Radio 3 (the BBC’s mostly classical music station)

I have on Brian Kay’s Light Programme (which reminds one so much of the old days with Wayne Mack…[NOTE: Wayne Mack was a Cleveland radio fixture, and at the end of his career he had a noontime program on light music on WCLV-FM “Noon with Wayne Mack”, which George used to refer to as “Nausea at Noon.”]) and he just finished a long set of brass band music with a little chat about a performance of [G.F. Handel’s] Messiah he once put on with a brass band arrangement of the accompaniment… [italics added]

The mind fairly boggles.

Indeed it does.
