The Organist Entertains was a long-running music programme broadcast on BBC Radio 2 presented by Nigel Ogden.

The 30 minute programme focussed on the organ in its many guises, and played recordings and live broadcasts of theatre organs, pipe organ and electronic organs around the United Kingdom and the rest of the world.

The programme ran as a weekly feature on Radio 2 from 11 June 1969. The introductory music was 'From This Moment On' by Cole Porter. On 10th January 2018, the BBC Announced that the programme was to be discontinued after being on air for almost 50 years and the final programme was broadcast on 8 May 2018.

Alan's programme aims to capture the spirit of the variety of organ music that each broadcast offered. Don't miss it, but come, sit back, relax and enjoy!

Proudly supported by: Nelson Pine Industries
