Colin Richell Posted May 29, 2011 Share Posted May 29, 2011 I just cannot believe that Reginald Dixon would have suvived so long had he been guilty of the things suggested by MM. However I do agree with the comment regarding the increasing age of audiences, and I recall that in my AP days many years ago, many of the concert goers were in wheel chairs, or walked with sticks or zimmer frames. There were so many infirm people you did worry how long they would be attending, especially as AP was not easily accessible. I admired their loyalty for travelling long distances in all kinds of weather, and if we did happen to see a young person we would grab him and attempt to persuade him to take a permanent interest in the Willis organ. Perhaps Reginald Dixon attracted the younger element at his popular concerts. Colin Richell. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
