London Palladium with Wolfe, Lewis, Tucker & The BBC Concert Orchestra
By Jason Robert Brown
Friday Night Is Music Night has been broadcast on BBC Radio 2 continuously since 1953, devised to feature the extraordinary musicians of the BBC Concert Orchestra. It is now the longest-running orchestral radio programme in the world. I can’t imagine the founders ever planned for a quirky middle-aged American songwriter to hijack the entire thing with a whole madcap band of merry dingbats, but that’s what happened this week, and it was honestly everything I ever wanted from a concert in my life.
