Smooth Classics with Margherita Taylor 10pm - 1am
Bob Jones' pioneering podcast series dedicates time to the artists and organisations that make the classical world turn - this week he talks to John Wilson.
Conductor John Wilson has made a reputation for himself as a leading exponent of music from the great era of musicals. He's just appeared with the CBSO at the Cheltenham Music Festival with a programme dedicated to Rodgers and Hammerstein. That same repertoir is being taken around the country with his own orchestra. He explains the lasting appeal of the genre for the audience and for him.
