News has belatedly reached Phantom Circuit of the passing away of Brian Rust, at the age of 88, on 5th January. He was a revered discographer of jazz and popular music and the presenter of the wonderfully crackly vintage music programme Mardi Gras on Capital Radio in the ’70s and ’80s.

Via YouTube, here’s the music he used as the theme to Mardi Gras.
