Episode 206 – Farewell to the Troc

Tonight we take you back (almost) exactly 57 years to the Trocadero Elephant & Castle for a program of highlights from the closing concert. The 40 minutes of music is all presented by Alex Cambell-Gifford. So sit back and relax and bask in the sounds of of the Troc Wurlitzer as it was in the cinema. It’s with thanks to the Cinema Organ Society that this Wurlitzer is now installed in the Troxy and is one of the finest examples of a Wurlitzer in the world.
