GOOD MU­SIC AWARD

Good

mu­sic lovers en­joy tune­ful lis­ten­ing on the BBC and in re­cent years much of it has been in the hands of Brian Kay. A choral scholar at King’s Col­lege, Cam­bridge, he first came to no­tice as the colour­ful and elo­quent bass in the hugely pop­u­lar King’s Singers.

Branch­ing out into broad­cast­ing his knowl­edge and love of all forms of melodic mu­sic be­came clearly ev­i­dent as he hosted a string of suc­cess­ful shows, in­clud­ing Brian Kay’s Light Pro­gramme, Brian Kay’s Sun­day Morn­ing, Fri­day Night is Mu­sic Night, 3 for All, and Melodies for You. What a col­lec­tion and what a feast of good mu­sic.

Brian is also a distin­guished con­duc­tor and has held a num­ber of im­por­tant po­si­tions in­clud­ing a stint as Di­rec­tor of the pres­ti­gious Hud­der­s­field Choral So­ci­ety. There are many more strings to his mu­si­cal bow but through­out all his singing, di­rect­ing, con­duct­ing and pre­sent­ing, he has re­mained loyal to good tune­ful fayre.

On be­half of all our read­ers, thank you Brian for your on­go­ing mu­si­cal in­spi­ra­tion.
