From the Library: The Light Programme

in Daily Programme

by Elrik Merlin on Saturday, 23 October, 2010

Join us today on Radio Riel for another journey into the world of Light Music from the middle of the 20th Century.
Light Music is characterised by a predominance of melody – generally memorable melody. Today we will be featuring Ted Heath and His Music, Sydney Torch and the Queen’s Hall Light Orchestra, Gavin Sutherland and the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, and many more, including recreations of the feeling of radio programmes like Grand Hotel with the Palm Court Theatre Orchestra.
The Light Programme is presented by Elrik Merlin as part of our series From the LibraryFor more information on the world of Light Music, please read this previous article.
Today’s programme is presented by Elrik Merlin and produced by Radio Riel in association with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen now at
