Brian Kay has spent his entire working life in a career that is both successful and rewarding. His fascinating collection of memories and anecdotes throws a hugely entertaining light on a life entirely devoted to the joy of music and music-making. He was the founder bass of the internationally renowned vocal group The King's Singers, spent the next 25 years writing and presenting thousands of programmes for BBC Radios - his own Brian Kay's Sunday Morning on Radio 3 to such Radio 2 favourites as Friday Night is Music Night and Melodies for You. He then moved back to the open spaces of the concert hall, conducting choral and orchestral concerts all over the world, including his annual 4000-voice Really Big Chorus Messiah from Scratch in London's Royal Albert Hall. He has been the lowest frog on a Paul McCartney single and a member of the backing group for Pink Floyd. Brian Kay recounts his fascinating life in intimate and amusing detail, sharing with us his great love of life and his abiding passion for music.
