So, my dear friends, like Din Joe in The Good Old Days, I invite you all to Take The Floor and dance, march and exercise to your heart’s content over the next hour of our weekly “Lunchtime Favourites”.
Let’s start the ball rolling with a selection of lively marches. Here we go….”  And I can promise you a wide variety of wonderfully rhythmic tunes – where one will wish to dance, waltz and relax.
