There are many shows that feature a wide range of vintage music. Nick Muir is on Exmouth’s ‘Bay FM’ on Sunday afternoons and he plays music from the 20s through to the 60s, including lots of dance bands. Nick paid a nice birthday tribute to Denny on his November 1st 2015 show. You can here a selection of Nick’s two hour shows on the ‘listen again’ page on the Bay FM site.


Hear Nick’s tribute to Denny by clicking on the following link:

Mike Carey, of Radio Derby, presents an excellent show, featuring a wide range of music on Sunday afternoons from 4-6pm. Mike’s musical knowledge is second to none, and he is of course Denny’s biographer.
