David Mellor - Sunday 22 June 2014

David Mellor marks the midsummer with some scorching summertime classics.

Ever hopeful that the spell of good weather might continue, David Mellor dusts down his deck chairs in the garden, pours himself a glass of something nice and plays you a fine selection of summer classics.  

There will be Gershwin's Summertime, of course, Delius’s Summer Night On The River and many more, including Irving Berlin's Heatwave

Phew! What a scorcher!
