Thanks Helen. I'm recording all of them.

The tribute to Brian was first broadcast in 2014 according to my TV (the radio part...) and also to the Radio 2 website.

Listened to Tim Rice's tribute to Peter Skellern yesterday,Helen, and what a lovely,sincere tribute it is...

You're A Lady is such a beautiful song.... his arrangements,choirs and brass bands are so lush and lovely....not forgetting his lovely voice..

This song was mentioned in the programme. It's a parody of Peter's style by Victoria Wood.

I listened to the lot a couple of weeks ago, so thanks, Helen. I thought the Jake Thackray was superb. They were all good.

I've not heard the Peter Skellern one so thanks for the reminder Becky! I'll record it for when I've got some time and nothing to listen to.
