Today’s programme celebrates the life and music of German composer and bandleader James Last who passed away yesterday (June 9). His compositions and distinctive arrangements made him popular in many parts of the world, especially in Germany and the UK. He reportedly sold in excess of eighty million albums.
In addition, we’ll bring you a selection of mainly instrumental music, and primarily from the 1960s as we present a comfortable sojourn in … the International Lounge.
You’ll hear instrumental — and other — arrangements of well-known tunes of the period, along with the best of popular production music and themes from the 60s. Most of the material is from the United Kingdom, the United States and Europe.
