Hot Pipes Podcast 218 explores just some of the range in human emotions with popular music composed in the 20th century. But not all, leaving some for a future programme!

Your feedback is always appreciated. Let me know what you like and what you don't like - and especially what you'd like more of. In the words of the robot in Short Circuit, "I need INPUT".

As mentioned in Hot Pipes 216, on 217 I review 3 new CDs from Howard Beaumont, William Campbell and George Wright. Then it's the turn of organs which are rarely, if ever, recorded commercially, along with two newcomers to Hot Pipes, Stephen Vincent and Peter Jebson.

My thanks to all those who have supplied in-concert recordings, making this and similar shows possible.

Hot Pipes one-hour podcast 215 is now available... There's much controversy in the theatre organ world regarding the music that artists play in concert and on commercial releases. Going through my track library, it's very easy to pinpoint songs that get more than their fair share of plays, and there are lots of them. Edition 215 names and shames a few of these over-worn songs and suggests alternatives that have had very little exposure through the years. Now, that's not to say that I'd like every artist to play all of my alternatives - we'd be right back to square one - but I think you get the picture...

As I say on the show, I hope that this will restart a discussion on repetition of repertoire. We, as audience members, also need to suggest a change to the same-old formulas with the tried-and-overworked show medleys. There's lots of great music out there!

Enjoy the show! www.hotpipes.eu
