Following this Tuesday night's 'Organist Entertains' featuring Charlie Balogh's excellent recording of 'Pinball Wizard', Chris Evans raved about the track yesterday on his Radio 2 breakfast show and gave the organ world one of the biggest plugs that it has had in ages by replaying the track during peak airtime! As if this wasn't enough, he went further again this morning and interviewed star American organist, Charlie Balogh over the phone!
With all the speculation about Jean Martyn's possible pending appearance on Britain's Got Talent and its publicity for 'our kind of music', one can only hope that this kind of 'profile raising' can only help to make a wider audience aware of just what happens in the world of the organ and keyboard!
A stream of banter and phonecalls also brought about a conversation concerning the 'East Sussex National Golf Hotel' and the current installation of the huge Wurlitzer within, so all power to Chris and those at BBC Radio 2 for their interest in the organ scene!
