From 2Day to Baroque

Did you catch ‘2Day’ on Friday? Radio 2 mixed things up for the day, changing the scheduling to showcase the variety of music played by the station with this year’s focus on the ‘Orchestra’. Each programme looked at the groups of instruments in an orchestra throughout the day.

I liked that I was learning as well as enjoying a brilliant mix of music. For example did you know that an orchestra does not include a saxophone?

Bonfire night with a difference

Who doesn’t love Bonfire night?

Forgetting the allegations of torture and the whole Gunpowder Plot (basically everything associated with it), I love Bonfire Night. It reminds me of the firework displays I went to as a child, wrapped up in at least 100 layers, whooshing my sparkler around to spell my name with the light, the smell of hotdogs and the sound of classical music drifting through the crisp cold air to stir the senses.
