Chris is a sports journalist living in south-east London, and a keen supporter of Norwich City football club. He developed an enthusiasm for the theatre organ in his early teens, and soon acquired a wide-ranging knowledge of organists and their playing styles, both from his father’s collection of recordings and by attending theatre organ concerts and chatting to like-minded enthusiasts. His musical heroes range from Maclean to Rodwell and from Dixon to Wyllie, as well as today’s top players. From light music to jazz, Chris is also a follower of the best popular music from orchestras, big bands, rhythm combos – and anything that brings out the best in these musical genres. He also plays the theatre organ as an element of his hobby, just for his own enjoyment.
