Monday Classics in the Rain

And, once again, my journey south to Phoenix FM was through much airborne water. Therefore, the opening of the show had a watery theme - starting with the Non Classical Classic, courtesy (of course) of The Waterboys, with their hit 'The Whole of the Moon'.

Following on from that we heard:

'The Aquarium' from Carnival of the Animals - Camille Saint Saens

As the sky darkened over the Baytree Centre, and the rain fell, yet again...

'Storms in Africa' from 'Paint the sky with stars' - Enya

'3rd Movement' "Minuetto" from Symphony no 40 - Wolgang Amadeus Mozart

Final Movement from Piano Concerto no 1 - Tchaikovsky

The Wind Down: 'Ave Maria' - as performed in 2008 by 'The Spiritual Angels'

'Allegro' from Recorder Concerto in C - George Philippe Telemann

Crockett's Theme - Jan Hammer

The Film Classic: 'Zadok the Priest' - G F Handel from 'The Madness of King George'

The Show-Stopper: From the Planets: 'Venus' - Gustav Holst

And this week, I handed over to Steverobbo for the Latitude 2009 Show.

See you next time, one and all...
