The Music of the NDO - some sadly now unavailable
Permission has just been obtained to produce a double album of the Northern Radio Orchestra - the last big band to play at the Playhouse Theatre.
This will mean that the music of all the 3 BBC Manchester big bands, spanning some 60+ years will soon be available to the public and broadcasters.
Thanks to the BBC and the Musicians Union for making this possible
