Millions of people flock to this special city on the Thames not only for it’s historical sights, Royal events, and popular eateries, but also for the city’s world-famous music scene.

Home to Thomas, and holding a very special place in his heart, listeners will learn about this very special and vibrant city through the songs created to reflect its beauty, excitement, and mystery.
Featuring greats such as Petula Clark with “Meet Me In Battersea Park”, to “London Calling” by The Clash, to the funky sounds of The Pet Shop Boys with “West End Girls”, to the Crooner King himself, Michael Buble, singing “Foggy Day In Londontown”, this programme not only has some of the most fun and interesting songs about London, but a great range of voices which have defined this city for nearly a century.
Famous places and landmarks appear in this musical line-up, including cafes, tube stations and even London’s famed grey skies. For those that live in and visit alike, the “Sound of The Underground” can not compete with the sounds of “The City”, or the sound of the traffic on “Warwick Avenue”. There is nothing quite like “Landing in London” during the midst of a fantastic “Waterloo Sunset”.
