Pod 213: George Morton Conducts Thunderbirds

Podsterons (AKA Listeners of the Gerry Anderson Podcast) know and love the music of Barry Gray, Richard Harvey, and Crispin Merrell– but what does a conductor and arranger for orchestra make of all these FAB tunes? George Morton conducted the Stand by for Action concert last April and in this new interview he offers keen insight into the process of turning old scores back into symphonic sounds! Plus, the origins of Ed Straker in FAB Facts! Chris Dale has an unexpected guest! And Jamie and Richard bear witness to a tug o' war!

Playing Officer Orrin in Gerry Anderson's last live action series 'Space Precinct' clearly wasn't enough to put Richard off the worlds of Gerry Anderson!

As well as co-hosting the Gerry Anderson Podcast and the almost-monthly Facebook, Twitch, Periscope and Youtube broadcast, FabLive, Richard has also taken parts in the audio series 'Terrahawks' and the pilot minisode for the forthcoming 'Gerry Anderson's Firestorm'.
