Episode 168 – Simply Sounds Like Simon

On this week’s show we visit the Leisure Centre in Woking for a console work out by International star Simon Gledhill. The sounds of the Mighty Wurlitzer work well in the hall and what you hear on the show is taken from a live performance last year.  Apart from the wonderful music Simon also talks to Len Rawle who with his team look after the Wurlitzer.
