Show Notes Chapter Markers

In this episode Nick and Simon discuss the obscure British pianist Des Luton [1924-1987?]. Known for an incredible left-hand technique, Des has since fallen into obscurity.  Nick and Simon have managed to get hold of possibly the only recording of the mercurial piano player via a 78 RPM recording made as a demo and unreleased commercially; so for once we can play it!

(Please note, this episode of our podcast was an April Fools Day special and sadly Des 'Left Hand' Luton never actually existed!)
