Episode 216 – An Airing For Aaron

On this week’s show its turn of our star organist to entertain. Who better than the senior winner of last years ATOS young organist of the year competition, Aaron Hawthorne. Aaron is playing his ‘home’ Wurlitzer – the one in Pollokshaws Burgh Hall, Glasgow and he certainly gets the best sounds with a varied and enjoyable programme.
