Songs from the First and Second World Wars.

Squeezebox maestro John Kirkpatrick has recorded a glorious selection of of songs from the First and Second World Wars. In a programme that highlights two different kinds of material - as you'd expect there's a smattering of the popular hits of the day, interspersed with a selection of songs sung on the Front Line by service personnel.

"In the main this is a celebration of the comradeship and spirit that allowed those previous generations to Keep Smiling Through. These are the songs these people sang at the time, with the straightforward attitude that was prevalent amongst our glorious forebears - we're all in this together, so buck up and get on with it."

It's a sensational and occasionally poignant musical feast.
