/ #82 Does the Organist Entertains on Radio 2 Do More Harm Than Good

Feb 26, 2014, 17:09

This programme has done more harm to the modern organ than anything I can think of. When trying to get work in hotels etc., I am shown the door the moment I mention the word Organ. We don't want any of that Blackpool Tower music here, is nearly always the comment. I now say I play multi keyboards and that gets a better response. As an organ player of 40 odd years I know how versatile the modern organs can be and the wonderful range of sounds they can produce, and feel it is a great shame that they are not promoted more on the radio.
