Exmouth Shanty Men feature on BBC Radio 3 - Sunday February 11th
We are pleased to say that we were featured on the BBC Radio 3 show "Choir and Organ" on Sunday Feb 11th. The presenter Sara Mohr-Pietsch aired our song "Blood Red Roses" from our album "Randy Dandy O", sung by our one true leader Sam Minella (aka Derek Brookes). Also on the progam were choral works from Mozart, Wagner and Purcell - no contest!
