David Mellor

David Mellor takes it nice and easy in this fascinating new series. Saturdays, 9pm.

You can listen to last week's show on our Classic FM Radio Player, or go to the Classic FM Playlist for a list of the pieces played in each programme.

 

Saturday 25th March, 9pm

Tonight, David Mellor features the very best of Light Music which originated from France in the 19th and 20th centuries. There will be highlights from Charles Gounod’s grand opera Faust, and Offenbach’s delightful Gaîté Parisienne. 

Plus – a real treat, in the form of a rarely-heard recording from the French cabaret singer, songwriter and actress Édith Piaf. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear once of France’s greatest international stars on Classic FM. 

 

Saturday 1st April, 9pm

David continues Classic FM’s celebration of the greatest Light Music composers ever to have lived – so if you’re a fan of the likes of Eric Coates and Ronald Binge, do join David for an hour of toe-tapping favourites!
