Episode 181 – Kelsall Wonders at Worthing

On this week’s show we go to the seaside! Worthing to be precise, where for half an hour you can enjoy the sounds of Blackpool maestro Phil Kelsall who is celebrating his 40th anniversary at the Tower Ballroom this year. Since the Assembly hall Wurlitzer started playing in 1981 Phil has been twice a year since and is a firm favourite.
