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:
