Charity Shop Classics : My Listeners Choice

One radio show I love listening to is ALLFM's weekly programme Charity Shop Classics which goes out every Sunday morning at 11am and is also uploaded as a podcast on MixCloud.

I recently had the privilege of been asked to present a Listener's Choice Special by one of the shows regular presenters which went out on Sunday July 16.

I selected several recent charity shop finds, mainly with a Geoff Love theme to commemorate the bandleader and music arranger's forthcoming centenary on September 4,

The programme can be listened to in its entirety here:
