Thanks for posting that. It brings back fond memories of Dudley Savage's excellent and very popular request programme "As Prescribed," from, as the comment says, the ABC Cinema in Plymouth.

It used to be broadcast live on what was then the BBC West of England Home Service every Sunday morning. It was regular listening in our household so I well remember hearing it as a child.

Dudley Savage doesn't get mentioned much nowadays, but I seem to remember he was an excellent organist. He studied under the assistant organist at Truro Cathedral, but was probably best known for his accomplished performances on the cinema organ.

It would appear that the Plymouth organ went to Blackheath Halls, London. Is it still in use there?
