Episode 199 – Putting A Seal On Melody

On this week’s show we have raided the archive and bring to you a classic broadcast played by that Master of Melody – Jospeh Seal.  Joe was very much associated with the beautiful Wurlitzer in the ABC Kingston-Upon-Thames and that is where this broadcast is being played from. So sit back as Joe takes you on a journey though melody and rhythm and a set of solid standards.
