David Mellor Recommends - 2 June

This Saturday’s New CD Show is a Diamond Jubilee special, and every featured album has a connection to Britain or the Commonwealth. Among the highlights, we’ll hear music from the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s official CD to mark the Thames Diamond Jubilee pageant, and a very special recording of The Walk To The Paradise Garden by Delius.
