David Mellor - Sunday 6 July 2014

David Mellor journeys into the delightful world of Light Music.

In this year’s Classic FM Hall of Fame countdown, Light Music favourites by Eric Coates and Ronald Binge surged up the chart – so tonight, inspired by their success, David presents a Light Music special on Classic FM.  

What it is about these two composers that makes their music so catchy and infectious?  With popular pieces like Sailing By and the Dambusters March (pictured), alongside plenty of rarely-heard melodies, this promises to be a very enjoyable journey of toe-tapping musical discovery.
