JACK HYLTON AND THE BOYS

with BEN LAKE
THE SISTERS MCCARTHY and THE SWINGTETTE
On October 7, in Jack Hylton 's first broadcast since his return from America and his first in this country since September, 1935. a goodly part of his programme was swing music. He did it, as he said, to illustrate a further advance in the progress of that which we once knew as Jazz. He got hundreds of telegrams andmessages of congratulation, but also hundreds of letters from his fans. ' Give us what we know you by. Give us the sweet music you played before you went away.'
So tonight and again on Saturday
Jack Hylton , though he will play a little swing music (which he still believes is the music of the future) will make the greater part of his programme ' sweet
It is good news that he intends to start his band again as a permanent concern in the new year. Many of the fine musicians to be heard tonight and on Saturday will be in his new orchestra.

The Archive Hour: Salvaging Jack Hylton

On his death in 1965 Britain's famous bandleader of the 1920s and 30s, Bolton-born Jack Hylton , left an extensive archive of tapes, photographs and musical scores and arrangements. In reappraising Hylton's career, Jeffrey Richards visits the Hylton archive, now housed at Lancaster University, where neglected and forgotten musical gems by the Hylton Band are now being rescued from obsolete home-made tapes.

Jack Hylton and His Band

with specialities by Wilbur Hall (comedy instrumentalist), Joe Rossi (boy accordionist), Dick Murphy (songs), Alice Mann (songs), Peggy Dell (songs), George Lyons (harp), Freddy Schweitzer (in comedy), Harry Raderman (songs)
Jack Hylton's reputation can be compared with Paul Whiteman's. As well as being one of the greatest showmen of jazz, he is a fine musician who has a band that is second to none for entertainment.
Hylton was born in Bolton some forty-five years ago. and after the war he became a pianist in a London dance orchestra. His own band first broadcast from the Piccadilly Hotel.

JACK HYLTON AND HIS ORCHESTRA

with PEGGY DELL in 'You Shall Have Music'
With this programme, the first since his return from the United States, and his first broadcast in this country since September, 1935, Jack Hylton promises to give listeners something original in musical entertainment. In addition to the various popular dance numbers and novelties for which he has long been famous, he is to ' dress up ' tunes we know and love, blending the spectacular, the sentimental, the wistful, the inspiring, and the witty in elaborate orchestral setting
' If a goodly part of this programme swings', he says, ' that is beside the point. I am not deliberately setting out to play swing music. Rather, I am endeavouring to illustrate a further advance in the progress of that which we once knew as Jazz '

'AMERICA CALLING AGAIN!'

Eddie Pola 's Hour
Eddie Pola , the author of the very successful burlesque American programme broadcast in July, has devised this second parody on Transatlantic programmes. Among the radio, variety and film stars to be parodied are the Mills Brothers, the famous close harmony team ; Sophie Tucker , the last of the ' red-hot mommas,' Ruth Etting (' Ten Cents a Dance ') ; Al Jolson , the famous ' mammy -singer'; Burns and Allen, most famous of American cross-talk comedians ; and Jack Pearl , an original comedian with a Dutch flavour. Most of these
American stars are well known to listeners in this country by their performances in films or on records. For many listeners the high-spot of the programme will be Jack Hylton 's impressions of the stylo of various American dance bands. A Derby commentary in American stylo and a surprise item from Hollywood are also promised.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website, and programmes to purchase.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
