The New Releases Show with David Mellor

Saturdays, 9-10pm

Classic FM Studio Props

Every Saturday night at 21:00, David Mellor picks out the very best new releases, sharing his encyclopaedic knowledge of classical music to help you choose the finest albums to add to your collection – whether you’re a seasoned purchaser of new music, or a newcomer to all things classical.

If you ever get the chance to pop round to David Mellor’s house for a cup of tea, make sure you take a quick look at his music collection: it’s really quite something.  His is the only house we know of that has CDs and music lining the wall of the upstairs toilet, given how many are there to find a home for.  And as someone who’s spent the best part of 40 years amassing a collection of the very best classical recordings, David is the best possible guide when it comes to deciding what new albums you should spend your hard-earned cash on.

Every Saturday night, David profiles up to ten different releases on The New Releases Show, picking out not just popular artist-led albums but also compilations, reissues, and rather wonderful boxed sets of repertoire by the great composers.  There are regular features, too: the Young Artist to Watch, for example, or the Best Bargain.  Meanwhile, if, like David, you’re something of a classical music expert, you’re bound to enjoy the weekly Connoisseurs’ Choice: a new album that is off the beaten track, perhaps a little quirky, but always thoroughly deserving of your attention.

Very often, albums are given their first UK radio play on The New Releases Show – so it really is the place to hear a stack of hot-off-the-press releases first.  So, this weekend, treat yourself to an hour of the finest new albums in the company of David Mellor – and take the chance to expand your music collection, Classic FM-style.
