Angel Radio & The Big Band Orchestra

Link to Angel Radio
During October & November 2014 the Big Band Orchestra was recorded by Angel Radio a couple of times. Angel Radio specialises in playing music of the 40's through to the 70's and plans to keep on recording the band's music.

It also interviewed Dave Pearson in a separate programme explaining his part from the orchestra's initial conception to the present time.


Angel Radio plans to interview several of the orchestra's great musicians such as

  • Trumpet player Bob Hemming, the longest serving member of the band who worked for many years with the Cilla Black orchestra as well as other prominent artists

  • Dave Brown, the orchestra's vocalist & conga player whose interesting cabaret career includes his time on the QE2

  • Jan Zavada, the orchestra's great lead trumpet.
