Radio 2 at 50- theme tunes performed live
  • DuncanNewmarchDuncanNewmarch September 11
    Here's a video of some classic Radio 2 themes (inc Steve Wright, Pick of the Pops and Jimmy Young) played live by the BBC Concert Orchestra at the weekends Proms in the Park. I have a feeling this will only play to those in the UK

    I was @ the event in Hyde Park on the evening, wonderful hearing it the themes and watching the vid behind the orchestra - seeing the old presenters and the changing radio 2 logos through its history

    Great memories. Nothing compares to the sound of a live orchestra.
