Organist Entertains no longer to entertain

The BBC has announced that the long running Radio 2 programme ‘The Organist Entertains’ will cease transmission in May this year after 50 years of broadcasts.  The BBC have called the ‘resting’ of it along with other favourites such as ‘Listen To The Band’ as part of a ‘generational shake up’....

Presenter since 1980, Nigel Ogden announced his retirement and made the following statement

Thanking his late-night audience, Ogden said: “I’ve loved hearing from them and send my very best wishes for the future.  I’d also like to thank Radio 2 for the opportunity to play the music I love each week; it has been a huge privilege.”

All of us at OrganFax wish Nigel well and hope that some form of keyboard media will one day return to the Airwaves.
