EVERGREEN’S GOOD MUSIC AWARD
Brian Reynolds is one of our unsung heroes without whose work over several years the canon of light music would be very much the poorer. An expert on the BBC Radio programme Music While You Work ( see Evergreen, Spring 2004), he has written a book on the subject, Masters of Melody, An Era in Broadcasting, and also recorded a large number of the twice daily live broadcasts, more than 60 of which he has uploaded to a wonderful website called Masters of Melody, located at www. mastersofmelody.co.uk .
In addition, he includes information about other lost light music programmes including As You Were; Music Box; Bright and Early; Grand Hotel; Melody Hour; Melody on the Move; Swingtime; Listen to the Band; Morning Music; Marching and Waltzing; Piano Playtime and Those Were the Days. It is with great pleasure we invest Brian with our richly deserved Good Music Award.
