Pop Goes the Fourth – Keith Lockhart

Listen now:

Not only has Keith Lockhart been conducting the Boston Pops for nigh on 26 years, he is a frequent visitor to Europe and is Chief Guest Conductor of the BBC Concert Orchestra.

The Pops’ swift way of adapting to Covid, with an at-home performance of John Williams’ Summon the Heroes plus Keith’s Atlantic-crossing appeal make him a natural first subject.

Once upon a time, when newspapers were delivered to almost every home, lots of British kids also got a weekly comic. It was the best day of the week. For me it was a Thursday, which also meant there were only 2 more days of school before the weekend.

In the same almost-the-weekend spirit, look out for new RhodCASTs every other Thursday in your queue at Apple, Spotify, or that other one you like. Next week’s features the Liverpool actor and comedian Les Dennis and the writer Tony Staveacre talking about their successful YouTube revival, “Jigsy”.
