Softly Croons The Radiogram

George Melly tells the story of the successful collaboration between poet John Betjeman and composer Jim Parker in the 1970s, which resulted in four albums including `Banana Blush' and `Late Flowering Love'. The music brilliantly captures the sound of the periods about which Betjeman wrote so nostalgically - from music hall to 1920s palm court orchestra and 40s big band.
