The International Lounge — Celebrating James Last

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.

Today’s pro­gramme is pre­sent­ed by Elrik Mer­lin. If you are in the Unit­ed States or Cana­da, please click here to launch the Stream Licens­ing play­er. To lis­ten from out­side North Amer­i­ca, click here to start your play­er .
