The Optigan (a portmanteau of Optical Organ) is an electronic keyboard instrument designed for the consumer market. The name stems from the instrument's reliance on pre-recorded optical soundtracks to reproduce sound. Later versions (built under license and aimed at the professional market) were sold under the name Orchestron---via wikithingy.

Usually I hate listening to Christmas music (how many times do I have to hear Bruce sing santa Claus is coming to Town), but your program has been a real pleasure to listen to this morning.

Bill - It will even get pride of place, played immediately after Dr Who and before the first disc of the new King Crimson Sailor's Tales box!

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 12/25/17 11:51am Sem:

Thank you, Bill and Maxine, for today's show and it's atypical but nonetheless charming mix of seasonal tunage.

Settling in now for an afternoon of 100 km+winds, and Christmas dinner, if the electric doesn't go out. All the best to you, and the assembled. Later

Hey Folks, ready to hop here. Thanks for coming out. Hope the holiday is great!

Bill and all this has been the perfect antidote to Slade, Shakin' Stevens, Wham and all the usual humbug. Great selection and I'll catch the first of the show on catch up later! Enjoy the rest of Christmas everyone and best for the new year - until next time!
