The ‘Vinyl Vault Show’ on Blue Panda Radio Gold – Monday May 20th

Hi! music lovers everywhere!
Just to remind you that my next ‘Vinyl Vault Radio Show’ happens on Monday evening at 9pm on Blue Panda Radio.
There will be two albums up for discussion and what incredible albums they are. Yes, I will feature the wonderful sound of The Seekers through their 1974 compilation hits album “THE VERY BEST OF THE SEEKERS”.
You’ll hear all of their greatest hits and what great songs they are. The second album featured is a true classic and one that I have just discovered thanks to a friend. It’s the ninth studio album by singer/songwriter Chris Rea. The 1987 album entitled “DANCING WITH STRANGERS” is a wonderful collection of pop/rock songs with an underlying blues feel to them.
I’m really looking forward to this show and I sincerely hope many of our regular listeners can tune in.
Remember, it’s on Monday 20th May at 9pm on Blue Panda Radio.
Your music maestro,
John Kavanagh

Elvis Memories on Blue Panda Radio Gold

Hello fellow Elvis fans!
I am delighted to announce that I will be featuring the brand new Elvis release from our friends at https://www.rdm-edition.fr on this week’s “Elvis Memories” show.
It’s Elvis’ second album to be released in the UK and Ireland but with a twist. Yes that wonderful technician Anthony Stuchbury has remastered the album from mono to stereo and the sound is quite amazing. Now Anthony is a busy man but I will endeavour to contact him during the show and we can get a personalised, in depth analysis from the producer himself.
You can hear all the songs featured on the album, plus extras, this Sunday at 5pm on Blue Panda Radio Gold.
Elvisly yours,
John Kavanagh

‘John Kavanagh’s Vinyl Vault’ on Blue Panda Radio Gold

ATTENTION ALL MUSIC FANS!
I am delighted to announce a BRAND NEW show on Blue Panda Radio Gold.
Entitled: “JOHN KAVANAGH’S VINYL VAULT”.
It will be unique in that it will highlight many rare albums featuring artists of the 20th. Century.
Now it is a specialised show for music purists, but with this type of music being very scarce on radio today.
I thought it would be nice to please that niche audience out there and with much of the material being aired from the original vinyl, it makes the show even more special.
The show will air on the third Monday of each month from 9pm-11pm with a repeat on the following Sunday at 12 midday.
The first show will highlight the following 3 albums:
“BREAD WINNERS” – JACK JONES (1972)
“THE BEST OF ADAM FAITH” – (1971)
“DISCOVERY” – VIKKI CARR (1963)
The show will in the future contain a mix of music styles including: Easy Listening, Pop, Jazz, Rock etc and I do hope that many of you can tune in.
The first of these specials commence this Monday evening at 9pm on Blue Panda Radio Gold www.bluepandaradio.com
Your maestro in music 😃
John.
