Radio 2: The Shows

Organist Entertains, The

Nigel Ogden, poised at The Mighty Wurlitzer, and about to let rip with his signature rendition of In-A-Gadda-Da-VidaSHIP-IN-A-BOTTLE-like relic from an earlier age of Radio 2, more recently broadening its scope to include blokes doing Kinks covers on Hammond B3s, but forever remembered to a generation of frequency-skipping bemusees as the show where they’d all too readily break out the seagull-picking-at-stale-chips quasi-psychedelic tones of The Mighty Wurlitzer to tackle those all-important ‘standards’ and ‘Big Movie Themes’.

    I didn’t know Nigel Ogden was Metalunan. His show’s still piss-irritating though.

    I always refer to it as “The Organist Entertains Question Mark”.

    I wonder if this show lasted so long due to unintentional listeners like myself being too tired to turn it off or change the channel when it came on late right after a previous show I actually wanted to hear? It used to follow Radcliffe & Maconie when they had the evening show on Radio 2 way back, and nearly always seemed to feature some bloke playing the Dambusters March on the Wurlitzer at the Blackpool Opera House.
