It’s been great to see Classic Album Sundays, the brainchild of DJ and radio presenter Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, grow from strength to strength since its inception in 2010. In July that year I launched the monthly Living To Music series on my blog, with a classic album selected for the first Sunday of each month and the listeners subsequently sharing their impressions online. On hearing about this, a mutual friend had told me that Colleen was doing something similar in a more intimate manner, sitting down after Sunday dinner to listen to favourite LPs with family and friends – these gatherings evolving the name Classic Album Sundays. Living To Music would inspire Colleen to take a more direct approach, putting on audiophile listening events, the first of these held that October at the Hanbury Arms in North London, initially following the same albums I was featuring on Living To Music, but subsequently branching out on its own direction.

I hadn’t planned it that way, but it turned out to be a nice touch that the ‘Abbey Road’ listening session fell in the same week as John Lennon’s 70th birthday anniversary.
Having enjoyed such an auspicious start, Living To Music is catching the imagination of an ever increasing amount of music lovers. You can read all the comments here for the previous session – Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’:
