John Ross-Barnard at the microphone, holding his personal copy of "Test Card Grooves" whilst recording some voice-overs at The Audio Suite in Birmingham recently for a new international radio station broadcasting from Bergen in Norway. John was a BBC continuity announcer in the 1960s, and would often be heard proclaiming "Now we return to the Test Card and music", during the days when fewer programmes were broadcast during the day. We're sure the new CHR vinyl will bring back many memories to John of the music played on the test card.

Mozart Edition (GB) Ltd was founded in the late 1950s by music publishers Joe Cohen from London and Dr. Gustav Zagler from Vienna, with their first office in Sherlock Mews, Baker Street, London. Joe ran the company from the start, engaging many renowned British composers and arrangers, mainly in the light orchestral field, to publish their works with Mozart Edition. Other composers and arrangers soon followed from many parts of Europe, including Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland, augmenting the catalogue of music to over 3000 tracks. This new CD includes 24 recordings from the vaults of the Mozart Edition library, many of which are either new, or in stereo for the first time. 

Proceeds from the sale of this CD go to support Chichester Hospital Radio.
