A large scale wind orchestra piece by Keiron Anderson, paying homage to the Radio Shows of yesteryear. Workers Playtime starts with a flourish and a fanfare before becoming a jaunty, almost vaudeville like tune. The second movement, titled Listen With Mother, is a gentle lullaby, before the final movement called Down Your Way marches off into the distance. The melodies are instantly memorable and attractive, and the material is handled in a mature confidant style with lots of interest in all parts. Incorporating some sound clips from the BBC, a great set of pieces for inclusion in any program.
